Former Northern Iowa star switches to right tackle in New Orleans

Former Northern Iowa star Trevor Penning views a move to right tackle as a fresh start as he prepares for his third season with the New Orleans Saints. The first round draft pick in 2022 was limited to six games his rookie season due to injury. He made five starts at left tackle this past season.

Pennikng says the experience he has gained will help with the move and adjusting to the offense under new coordinator Klint Kubiak.

Penning believes the transition to right tackle will be a rapid one.

Penning’s move is just one of several changes on offense.

The Saints finished 9-8 last season.
