Metairie, LA – The New Orleans Saints placed wide receiver Adrian Arrington -- out since the preseason with a knee injury -- on the team's injured reserve, and in a corresponding move signed free agent wide receiver Greg Camarillo, interim head coach Aaron Kromer said at a Wednesday press conference.
Arrington, who went into the Saints' preseason camp as a top candidate for the team's fourth wideout opening, has been recuperating since August from meniscus surgery. The Saints originally cut Arrington from the roster on Saturday, but after poor performances by other receivers on the depth chart in last weekend's 40-32 home loss to Washington, they resigned Arrington on Monday morning.
For his career, the third-year player out of Michigan has caught nine balls for 110 yards and no touchdowns.
Camarillo joins the Saints after playing the last two years for the Minnesota Vikings. He has also spent time with the Miami Dolphins -- where he saw significant playing time in 2008 and 2009 -- and the San Diego Chargers, totaling 142 passes caught for 1,686 yards and five touchdowns.
