The New Orleans Saints have drawn the NFL's attention again.

The NFL is looking into whether the Saints illegally stashed linebacker Todd Davis in their training facility after they released him at a time the Denver Broncos were claiming him on waivers, sources said.

A Saints official said Sunday morning he was unaware of any impropriety.

The Saints waived Davis last week, planning to sign him back to their practice squad, so they kept him in team meetings at their training facility on Thursday. The Broncos claimed Davis the same day and wanted to bring him to Denver on Friday for practice but could not get a hold of him because he was in meetings in New Orleans, a source said.

Davis met the Broncos in St. Louis on Saturday, but not before the NFL began looking into the Saints' actions.

The NFL wants to determine what the facts are, but it's possible New Orleans will be facing a stiff fine.

Saints Under Investigation For Keeping Cut LB Davis

The New Orleans Saints are reportedly under investigation for keeping a player they’d cut on team facilities in the hopes of assigning him to the practice squad after he cleared waivers.

The Denver Broncos threw a wrench in those plans by claiming linebacker Todd Davis. Adam Schefter reports that when the Broncos called the linebacker to share the news, Davis didn’t answer and it wasn’t because of a lack of cell reception. He was reportedly in a team meeting with the Saints after he’d been cut.

Our front office needs to be more careful. I'm sure the Broncos only did this knowing we're not really cutting these players. I don't see a direct beef between the Saints and Broncos.

Regardless, our front office is on notice that little spies are out there watching. Frankly I'm growing tired of the reputation brewing around them while their draft picks and big contract players are some of the worst in the league.

Re: Saints Under Investigation For Keeping Cut LB Davis

We need to just follow the damn rules. We will lose a draft pick over a player that has what 3 tackles this year if that?

All speculation at this point, we are not even sure if there are any rules against this sort of thing...

Sure there are rules against having a cut player in team meetings that has not cleared waivers and has been claimed by another team.

The Saints should suspend the Linebackers Coach Joe Vitt and call it a deal with the league...
