The New Orleans Saints have made yet another free agent signing; this time they signed an offensive lineman. The Saints signed undrafted free agent Scott Winnewisser after he had a good showing at the team’s OTA’s. Winnewisser played tackle for most of his college career at California Poly State University, but during his senior year he was moved to guard. Winnewisser is expected to stay at guard for the Saints and should provide some depth for the Saints’ great offensive line.
Winnewisser will be set to play the left guard and even with his 6’5″ 301 pound frame it might be hard for him to get some time on the field. Ben Grubbs will be the starting left guard for the Saints and that would leave Winnewisser near the bottom of the depth chart. However, Winnewisser will still be a good edition to the Saints and could learn a lot from the veteran Grubbs. The Saints have a knack for signing players and developing them; I would expect Winnewisser will be one of those players that the Saints will develop and use him when they need him. Furthermore, Winnewisser is a versatile offensive lineman so if he does not get time at left offensive guard he could be more than capable to play somewhere else on the line.
Winnewisser is another good singing for the Saints as he gives them depth and versatility on the offensive line. Also, Winnewisser must have great work ethic as he made the Cal Poly State team as a walk on and has now been signed by the Saints as an undrafted free agent. Winnewisser seems like the type of player any team would be lucky to have and he should be a good fit with the Saints.
