Southern Miss alum Cameron Tom re-signs with the Saints
Some extra help for Drew Brees earlier this week with the Saints re-signing unrestricted free agent Cameron Tom.
The former Southern Miss Golden Eagles is on the books for a new one-year deal worth upwards of $800,000.
The USM alum appeared in 11 games with the Saints in 2018 before missing all of 2019 due to a shoulder injury.
This season, Tom is looking at time as a backup center or guard and says he’s happy to be back with the only organization he’s ever known. “I obviously have nothing to compare it to, but from what I’ve heard it’s just how the locker room is set up. All the guys in there are good guys. They help you out. Obviously there’s going to be competition, but it’s like everyone is there to help each other out and all the coaches are there to help you. Coach Payton I would say is like during the season he’s always thinking about the players and our bodies and recovery and stuff. So, it’s definitely a well-run organization from what I can see.”
Tom was originally signed to a member of the Saints practice squad as a undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss in 2017.
