Easton, 23, missed all of last season with a neck injury and had surgery to address the issue. He started the first 12 games of 2017 before he was sidelined with a fractured ankle. Easton brings experience at center and guard to New Orleans.

The Harvard alum made 17 starts for Minnesota after he was acquired in a trade from San Francisco for former Saints linebacker Gerald Hodges.
