The New Orleans Saints added some depth to their offensive line recently, bringing back a familiar face.


To make room on the roster for Ola, the Saints placed receiver Ted Ginn, Jr. on the injured reserve list.

The 33-year old Ginn, who injured his knee in Week 4, will be lost to the team for 8 weeks.

The 30-year old Ola, who on the Saints' opening-week roster, was released on September 12.

The 6-foot-5, 312-pound Ola played in two games for the Los Angeles Chargers last season, after playing in 6 games for the Buffalo Bills in 2016.

A native of Riverdale, Georgia, Ola has appeared in 31 career games, including 19 as a starter, over parts of 5 seasons in the NFL.
