Trevor Siemian

One player that will soon be on the market for other teams is Trevor Siemian.

He was initially brought on board following Drew Brees‘ injury. Brees was sent to the injured reserve after sustaining a collapsed lung and multiple fractured ribs. The Saints covered their bases by adding a third quarterback.

After all, they saw first hand how Covid-19 can wreck a franchise as the Saints took on the Broncos in Week 12 without a single quarterback on their active roster. The Broncos scored three points.

The Saints will get Brees off the reserve next weekend, and they could make him active. Then, they’ll be back to full strength in their quarterback room and would likely see if Siemian would stay on their practice squad.

Siemian didn’t get in the game with the Saints, but he does have a 13-12 record in the league. He has the capability of thriving in the right system, and while he didn’t get a shot this time, there’s no denying Siemian could still have use on their roster.
