Saints Host Austin Howard
The New Orleans Saints may be looking to add some depth to their offensive line.
The team hosted free agent offensive lineman Austin Howard on Friday.
The 31-year old Howard, who started every game at right tackle for the Baltimore Ravens last season, would provide the Saints a valuable back-up to starting tackles Terron Armstead and Ryan Ramczyk.
Prior to his one season in Baltimore, the 6-foot-7, 330-pound Howard spent one season with the Philadelphia Eagles, (2010), three seasons with he New York Jets (2011-2013), and three seasons with the Oakland Raiders (2014-2016).
A native of Davenport, Iowa, Howard has appeared in 92 career games, including 88 as a starter.
