Shane Lemieux is aiming to rejuvenate his career in 2024 after enduring three injury-riddled seasons.

The former offensive lineman for the Oregon Ducks recently inked a deal with the New Orleans Saints, as announced by the team last week. While the financial terms were not disclosed by the Saints, Katherine Terrell of ESPN reported that Lemieux signed a one-year contract at the veteran minimum salary of $1.06 million.

Following a promising start with the New York Giants in 2020, where he started at left guard in 12 games as a rookie, Lemieux has been sidelined due to injuries over the past three seasons.

In 2021, a patella tendon injury limited Lemieux to just one game. The following year, a toe injury kept him out for 16 games, and in the 2023 season, he suffered a torn biceps after only four games, ending his campaign prematurely.

Lemieux expressed his readiness for training camp, stating, “It was tough coming back from that… I’m healthy now. I’ve worked my butt off and I’m ready to get going. I try not to speak about the past. Just worry about today and getting better.”

Selected by the Giants in the fifth round (No. 150 overall) of the 2020 NFL Draft, Lemieux spent his first four seasons with the team, appearing in 18 games and making 12 starts from 2020 to 2023.
