New Orleans Saints rookie defensive end Payton Turner is already putting in the work to be great, just days after the 2021 NFL draft.
Because of this teams have been able to sign quality players who may not have been available in previous years under more normal circumstances. The Saints may be able to snag one as the Dallas Cowboys have released defensive tackle Antwaun Woods. On the surface consideration for Woods may seem like a stretch as the Cowboys were near dead last in defense and especially against the run.
He played 2 years of high school football, suffered an ACL injury in college, rehabbed it at the onset of a pandemic, and didn’t play what would have been his senior year in college this spring. After some reassurance from his agent, good news came. He had an offer as an undrafted free agent from the New Orleans Saints.
