The Saints made some roster moves following the weekend's rookie minicamp. The team announced they waived linebacker Adam Bighill, former LSU safety Rickey Jefferson, former South Plaquemines high school star Bradley Sylve and offensive lineman Daronte Bouldin.

Those four moves were necessary after the team signed defensive tackle Jay Bromley, linebacker KeShun Freeman, offensive lineman Michael Ola and fullback Ryan Yurachek. All four players participated over the weekend on a tryout basis.
