The two-time Super Bowl champion is already done with the New Orleans Saints, with the Miami Dolphins sniping him from the Saints practice squad.

Welp. Easy come, easy go. Heading into the bye week, the New Orleans Saints brought in veteran pass-rusher Jason Pierre-Paul to their practice squad to provide some added depth and veteran leadership. It makes sense for the Saints, as Pierre-Paul has been in the NFL since he was a first-round pick back in 2010 for the New York Giants. JPP would go on to win two Super Bowls in his career, one with those same Giants in 2011, and another with the Saints divisional rival; the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in 2020.

Fast-forward to now, and the veteran is already done with the Saints.

In his social media statement, Pierre-Paul was thankful for the opportunity the Saints gave him, but also seemed excited to go home. it is kind of a wonky situation, since while JPP was on the Saints practice squad, he was elevated for the Saints recent loss to the Atlanta Falcons, and was even in on two tackles.

As noted in the above tweet from Ian Rapoport, the Dolphins making this move makes a ton of sense for them considering they just lost Jaelan Phillips. As fate would have it, the Saints are also incredibly banged up at the moment, and that includes fellow veteran Cameron Jordan. Boy, when it rains it pours, even in the Bayou.

Given everything surrounding the New Orleans Saints so far in 2023, this news more likely than not won't move the needle a terrible amount. That said, the team is incredibly banged up health wise, so any depth, especially proven depth, would be beneficial. Alas, that's the way the waves break, especially when the team is treading water like they are.
