Soon after announcing they were releasing DeAndre Levy, the Detroit Lions lost a piece of their team to free agency. G Larry Warford has agreed to a free-agent deal with the New Orleans Saints, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.

Warford’s signing adds immediate size and strength to New Orleans’ offensive line.

The San Diego native was drafted by the Lions in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft, and became an immediate starter in his rookie season, starting all 16 games. He received the Detroit Lions/Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association Rookie of the Year Award for his efforts.
