Two former New Orleans Saints find new teams after being released

Two former New Orleans Saints who were released at the beginning of the season have found new homes and in both cases there are some ironic twists.

Fullback Korey Hall was signed by the Arizona Cardinals after being released by the Saints a few days before the first game of the season. After the suspensions were temporarily overturned for defensive end Will Smith and linebacker Jonathan Vilma, Hall was let go to make room on the roster for their return.

After playing for the Green Bay Packers, Hall was brought in to fill the vacant fullback position in 2011. However, journeyman fullback Jed Collins made such an impression on the staff, Hall was mainly regulated to playing on special teams.

To make room for Hall, the Cardinals released offensive tackle Pat McQuistan. McQuistan had actually played for the Saints as well but was released due to the depth at the offensive lineman position. He briefly was with the Dallas Cowboys before going to the Cardinals.

Safety Jonathan Amaya, who was with the Saints last season, has joined the Miami Dolphins after being released during the preseason. In a bit of a full circle, Amaya was actually part of a trade between the Saints and Dolphins for running back Reggie Bush. Amaya saw limited playing time and was mainly on special teams.
