NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Saints are signing kicker Blair Walsh to their practice squad, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. In his report Pelissero said the move could be in case a Covid situation comes up.

The signing also comes at a time when current Saints starter Wil Lutz is struggling. Lutz missed a 50-yard field goal against the Bears Sunday and has missed five of his last nine attempts.

Walsh last played in 2017 with Seattle. He spent the first five years of his career with Minnesota. For his career, Walsh has made 82.4% of his field goals.
