The New Orleans Saints will likely be one of the teams that gets the most interest from the NFL over the next few weeks.

The team has been trying to build depth at defensive tackle, and this week the team announced the signing of veteran defensive end Dante Fowler.

Fowler, 29, played for the Baltimore Ravens in 2016 and had played his first four NFL seasons with the New York Giants, Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers.

He signed with the Saints last season and is now a free agent.

The Saints also announced that defensive tackle Michael Sam, a former New Orleans Giant and Super Bowl champion, will join the team in 2018.

Sam, 28, was a two-time Pro Bowler with the Giants.

Sam was one of two former Super Bowl winners to be cut by the Giants, along with defensive tackle Justin Tuck, who signed with Baltimore in January.

Sam and Tuck were both considered two of the top defensive tackles in the league, along the same lines as Fowler.

The other player who will be joining the Saints this season is former NFL defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, who joined the Saints in 2016 after spending the past two seasons with Miami.

Knighton was released by Miami earlier this year.
