Saints to sign fullback Sutton Smith, former Steelers draft pick as linebacker
Yes...Championship

LINK

The New Orleans Saints are signing fullback Sutton Smith, according to an ESPN report.

Smith initially entered the NFL as a linebacker. He was a highly productive college football defender, recording 29 sacks and 56.5 tackles for loss in his final two years at Northern Illinois, and the Pittsburgh Steelers selected him in the sixth round of the 2019 draft.

He did not make the Steelers roster out of training camp that year, and has since switched positions as he's bounced around NFL practice squads, spending time with the Jaguars, Steelers and Seahawks.

The Saints are one of a handful of NFL teams who still use a fullback in their offensive personnel.

Michael Burton handled the position in New Orleans last season, playing 208 offensive snaps, but the Saints opted to sign former Panthers fullback Alex Armah this offseason, allowing Burton to sign with the Chiefs.

Think the ex-panther will be used more of a RB/FB so maybe he would be only used as a FB

Who is he like? Who else is 5’11”, 190-ish pounds and runs a 4.4?

Emmanuel Sanders, that’s who.
