One Day After Cuts; Saints Sign New Kicker and Punter

After cutting their kicker and punter on Tuesday, the Saints today filled their spots with the signing of kicker Garrett Hartley and punter Glenn Pakulak. The team cut ties with rookie kicker Taylor Mehlhaff yesterday after he was 3-for-4 on field goals and 9-for-10 on extra points.

Pakulak will take the spot of Ben Graham, who also was shown the door by the team Tuesday. “We were impressed with both Garrett and Glenn throughout the competitive sessions and we will continue to evaluate the positions closely throughout the remainder of the season,” Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said. The Saints also signed defensive back Tanard Davis to the practice squad.
