It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks.
Easton, 28, originally signed on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Harvard back in 2015. He was later traded to the 49ers in return for a seventh-round pick.
From there, San Francisco elected to trade Easton to the Vikings for LB Gerald Hodges a few months later. Unfortunately, Easton missed the 2018 season after undergoing surgery to correct a herniated disc in his neck.
The Saints signed Easton to a four-year deal worth $22.5 million back in 2019.
In 2020, Easton has appeared in 12 games for the Saints and started nine games for them.
