METAIRIE, La. – New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says the club has signed six players who received tryouts at rookie camp last weekend.
The signings announced Monday include that of Brent Leonard, who was Louisiana-Monroe's leading receiver last season. Also signed were defensive end Baraka Atkins, defensive back Korey Lindsey, kicker Jose Maltos, running back Khiry Robinson and guard Jeremiah Warren.
Atkins has played two seasons in the NFL since Seattle drafted him in 2007. Lindsey, a 2011 Cincinnati draft choice, has been with five NFL teams. Warren was on New England's practice squad for much of 2012, his rookie season. Maltos and Robinson are rookies.
Loomis says the Saints also have waived ex-West Virginia running back Shawne Alston, former Utah cornerback Ryan Lacy, and 2012 practice squad center Ryan Lee.
