Saints Lineman Nick Fairley Out For The Year With Heart Condition

The New Orleans Saints announced Monday they placed defensive tackle Nick Fairley on the reserve/non-football illness list, which ended his 2017 season.

Fairley, 29, visited multiple doctors this offseason regarding his heart condition, and reports began surfacing earlier this month that his National Football League career could be in jeopardy. Fairley only lasted four years with the Lions, and later played a year with the Rams getting half a sack that season. But ultimately the Saints did not want to risk putting Fairley on the field this season because of the concerns that have crept up.

Unsold inventory is at a 4.2-month supply at the current sales pace, down from 4.7 months a year ago. Mortgage rates rose after last year's presidential election but edged down in recent months.

Fairley's absence is the second recent blow to a Saints squad trying to break out of a rut of mediocrity that has produced three straight, 7-9, non-playoff seasons. Fairley learned a few month ago that a Red Flag was raised on his heart after a health examine.

Under NFI rules, the Saints are not required to pay Fairley his $1 million base salary this year since his injury was not related to football. He was drafted by the Lions in 2011 His best year with the team was 2013 were Fairley tailed six sacks and thirty four tackles.

The Saints' move Monday sidelines Fairley only for 2017. They also have 2nd year DT David Onyemata and 3rd year DT Tyeler Davison. This could jeopardize Fairleys career with the Saints and the NFL.

The 29-year-old Fairley enjoyed his best National Football League season in 2016, when he set career-highs with 43 tackles and 6.5 sacks.
