New Orleans Saints announce roster moves

Tight end Alex Smith back with the team


The New Orleans Saints announced Thursday, Aug. 20 that they have signed defensive tackle David Hunter, re-signed TE Alex Smith, waived/injured defensive tackle Austin Brown and placed tight end Kevin Brock on Injured Reserve. The announcements were made by Saints’Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis.

Hunter, 6 feet 2, 301 pounds, was originally signed by the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Houston in 2012. He had stints on the Texans practice squad and active roster as a rookie before being placed on Injured Reserve at midseason. He went to training camp with Houston in both 2013 and 2014. The Walter, Texas native recorded career totals at Houston of 163 tackles, seven sacks, two forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries. As a senior in 2011, he played in all 14 games for the Cougars and compiled 39 tackles and one blocked field goal.

Smith, 6-4, 250, is a 10-year NFL veteran who spent part of 2015 training camp in New Orleans, appearing in the preseason opener at Baltimore and posting one reception. Originally selected in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft by Tampa Bay out of Stanford, Smith is a 11-year NFL veteran who has appeared in 121 career games with 56 starts and had made 129 catches for 1,252 yards with 11 touchdowns. In 2014, Smith played in two games with Cincinnati before suffering a season-ending biceps injury.

W.T. Sherman is my favorite General. After all he did order Atlanta to be burned to the ground.

Yeah. Too bad our secondary looks like a MASH unit. And by all accounts it looks like DT is going to be a week spot given the fact we're signing undrafted free agents like clock work.

I can see the Saints resigning Bunkley when the season comes around.

Re: New Orleans Saints announce roster moves

We'll probably keep 3 maybe 4 DT's

We currently have

John Jenkins
Kevin Williams
Bobby Richardson (kicking ass, but more of a DE/DT)
Tyeler Davison (playing lights out)
Kaleb Eulls (looked good in game 1)
Ashaad Mabry (has shined throughout camp)

And now this guy...

I think we'll be OK.

Re: New Orleans Saints announce roster moves

If we're using four man fronts, it'd be risky odds with no less than eight defensive linemen, for both rotation and health...

Like Tyeler Davison, Bobby Richardson and Kaleb Eulls to make this roster as reserve linemen...
