The New Orleans Saints re-signed tight end Tory Humphrey and released quarterback Sean Canfield. Canfield was signed on Saturday to be on the roster in case of emergency over the weekend.

Humphrey is a fifth-year veteran who spent the past two years with the Saints. The Saints have been thin at the tight end spot this year, and both backups David Thomas and John Gilmore have been battling injuries.

We'll be curious to see if the Saints also return tailback Chris Ivory to practice today. Ivory is eligible to come off of the physically-unable-to-perform list, but the Saints have been waiting to bring him back since they've been healthy at tailback. Now that tailback Mark Ingram is nursing a bruised heel, the Saints might want to get Ivory ready in case he's needed this Sunday against the St. Louis Rams.

Once Ivory returns to practice, he can practice for up to 21 days before the Saints need to decide whether to activate him, release him or place him on season-ending injured reserve.

I was surprised Humphrey hasn't been on the team all year. He was an asset blocking and surprising showed pretty good hands during the preseason. Glad to have him back.

Yeah, we do seem to have a revolving door for a few players. I hope he sticks around. He does seem to have good hands and can block well.

Looks like we may be ready to run the ball down their throat, I believe he is more of a blocking TE. I would love to see us pound the rock more, with DLP now starting the final piece of the puzzle has been solved. I think he has brought a different domination to the offense.
