He was waived by the Packers and subsequently claimed by the Jaguars, who waived him as well and placed him on their practice squad.

The Saints claimed Summers off of the Jaguars practice squad back in December. He returned to New Orleans this summer and has been on and off of their roster. 

In 2022, Summers appeared in six games for the Saints and Jaguars and recorded four total tackles.
