The New Orleans Saints have signed quarterback Trevor Siemian to the active roster, Amie Just of the New Orleans Times-Picayune/Advocate reports.  This according to his agent, Mike McCartney.

On Friday, Siemian was on his second day of the five-day coronavirus onboarding, a source told The Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate, so he won't be available for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons. The expectation is that Siemian will be cleared to practice beginning next week.

The addition gives the Saints a third veteran quarterback on the 53-man roster after Drew Brees was placed on the injured reserve Friday afternoon. 

Siemian comes to New Orleans from the Tennessee Titans, where he had been on their practice squad since the beginning of the season. 

The Northwestern alumnus has been in the league since 2015 when the Denver Broncos drafted him in the seventh round of the NFL draft. 

He started in 14 games for Denver in 2016 — the year after New Orleans native Peyton Manning retired — and completed 59.5% of his passes for 3,401 yards.

In 2017, Siemian started in 10 games for the Broncos, completing 59% of his passes for 2,285 yards. 

Since then, he's been with the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Jets. He played in one game for New York last season, completing 3-of-6 passes for 3 yards.
