This is interesting: the New Orleans Saints signed former Atlanta Falcons offensive lineman Colby Gossett to their practice squad this week, per NewOrleans.Football’s Nick Underhill. This pickup comes just days before the Saints kick off with Gossett’s old Falcons team in their Week 18 regular season finale.

A sixth-round pick out of Appalachian State by the Minnesota Vikings back in 2018, Gossett has spent time with five different teams before coming to New Orleans. But the bulk of his game experience has been with the Falcons, where he played 314 snaps at left guard and 70 reps at right guard during the 2021 and 2022 seasons (including the 2022 preseason). He most recently played for the Browns in the 2023 preseason.

So are the Saints hoping Gossett can give them some inside info? Probably not. There won’t be anything he can share with them they won’t pick up studying game tape themselves, and New Orleans had to have learned a lot when the Falcons ran for 228 yards on Dennis Allen’s defense in a 24-15 road loss earlier this season. Gossett adds depth and some veteran experience to an offensive line that could use it, but don’t expect his presence to determine the outcome on Sunday.
