Siemian signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. Siemian served as the emergency backup quarterback for the Titans and Saints in 2020. The Northwestern product last played meaningful snaps in 2017 when he completed 59 percent of his passes for 2,285 yards (6.5YPA), 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions over 11 games with the Broncos. With Drew Brees set to retire, Siemian could secure a backup role behind Taysom Hill (knee) or Jameis Winston in 2021.
Siemian cleared waivers Tuesday and signed with the Saints' practice squad, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports. Siemian will serve as the Saints' emergency backup quarterback as they make a playoff push.
Siemian has been waived by the Saints. With Drew Brees (ribs) back from IR, Siemian is the odd man out, while Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston will remain in the team's backup QB mix.
The Saints signed Siemian to the active roster Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Siemian hasn't played since suffering a severe ankle injury in Week 2 of the 2019 season, but he's back to full health. With Drew Brees (ribs) on injured reserve, Siemian will join the Saints to serve as the No. 3 quarterback behind Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston once he clears the protocols for joining a new team.
The Titans signed Siemian to the practice squad Monday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports. Siemian joined the Titans mid-August, but he wasn't able to make it through final roster cuts. Instead, the 2015 seventh-round pick will remain on the practice squad as an emergency option at quarterback.
