Saints add Huggins to depleted interior defensive line

<p>METAIRIE, La. &mdash; The New Orleans Saints have signed defensive tackle Albert Huggins in a move that addresses a position where the club lost two prominent regulars this offseason.</p>
<p>The 6-foot-2, 305-pound Huggins is a third-year pro out of Clemson who has played in five NFL games — four with Philadelphia as a rookie in 2019 and one with Detroit last season.</p>
<p>New Orleans is trying to rebuild depth on its interior defensive line, which lost veterans Sheldon Rankins and Malcom Brown as part of cost-cutting moves across the roster to get under the salary cap. </p>
<p>Rankins left in free agency and Brown was traded to Jacksonville.</p>
<p>Huggins won two national titles at Clemson, where he appeared in 46 games and had seven sacks among 83 total tackles.</p>
