According to a team representative, the New Orleans Saints have agreed to sign veteran Jason Pierre-Paul to their practice squad in order to improve their pass rush.

Pierre-Paul, 34, hasn’t played this season but was active in 14 games with the Baltimore Ravens last year, recording three sacks. Despite speculations of retirement, he has demonstrated his readiness with an Instagram exercise video, claiming he still has plenty left in the tank.

This acquisition comes as the Saints look to improve their pass rush, which ranks 26th in the NFL with only 18 sacks. Prior to Pierre-Paul, Jordan Willis joined the practice squad.

Their current defensive ends have combined for just 7 sacks, with top draft pick Isaiah Foskey out due to injury.

While Carl Granderson leads the Saints with 5.5 sacks, his performance has recently decreased, while veteran Cameron Jordan, 34, has only provided two sacks.

Pierre-Paul, a former first-round choice for the New York Giants in 2010, provides substantial experience, having been selected to three Pro Bowls.

He last made the Pro Bowl in 2020 while playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he has a career total of 94.5 sacks, including 5.5 in the last two seasons with the Ravens and Buccaneers.
