A former starting cornerback worked out for the New Orleans Saints recently.

DeShawn Shead, who was a starter for the Seattle Seahawks in 2016, worked out for the team on Tuesday evening.

A 7-year veteran, Shead spent the first 6 years of his career with the Seahawks, appearing in 54 games, including 22 starts, before playing in 12 contests with the Detroit Lions last season.

A native of Palmdale, California, Shead ended last season on injured reserve, after compiling 18 tackles.

In parts of 7 NFL seasons, the 30-year old Shead, who played his collegiate football at Portland St., has accumulated 168 tackles and two interceptions.

In addition, the Saints also worked out safety Jalen Moore on Tuesday.

Moore, who played in college at both TCU and UTSA, signed with the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent last season, before being released in August.

Moore was then added to the Denver Broncos' practice squad, before being released in September.
