After recording 28 passing touchdowns for only three interceptions during his final season at Oregon State.

In three starts, Luton completed 60 of 110 passes for 624 yards, two touchdowns,

and six interceptions, four against the Pittsburgh Steelers in his last NFL appearance.

He joined the Seattle Seahawks last season,

But never saw the field before the year ended on the Miami Dolphins' practice squad.

Jaguar brought Luton back on a reserve/future contract in February but released him last month.

They re-signed him two weeks ago, but he did not make the final 53-player roster.

Jameis Winston and Andy Dalton are the only two quarterbacks on the Saints' active roster.

So Luton was eventually able to join the team as his third substitute.
