The Saints have brought another player back into the fold, Cameron Tom re-signs to Saints. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed yet. This move is another boost to the interior at guard and center.
It is also a major plus given his familiarity with the offense and good sign moving forward. Tom was a restricted free agent and was not tendered before free agency and it seemed there was not a market for his services.
Tom played college ball at Southern Miss and is a Baton Rouge native. He joined the Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2017 and spent most of that year on the practice squad. He has played 11 career games with one start, all in 2018. Only six of those games did he play on the offensive line. In the five others he appeared with the special teams units.
He missed all of 2019 with a shoulder injury after not playing in the preseason. He has earned high praises from coaches and hopes to be a full part of the rotation this year. He could potentially earn a starting spot next year with Larry Warford in the last year of his contract.
The NFL draft is a couple weeks away, so news that Cameron Tom re-signs to Saints gives you the idea that the team is set on the inside. However, the depth at offensive tackle is still in question. New Orleans could possibly look to add another veteran presence or turn to the draft to fill the void. Overall this is a good deal for Tom and the Saints.
