Roster Moves

The Saints made a couple of roster moves today, adding two players while releasing two to make room on the roster for them.

The Saints signed WR Montez Billings and LB Sam Maxwell after impressive showings in rookie tryouts this past weekend.

Billings, an Auburn product, caught 55 passes for 645 yards and 1 TD in his 34 game career at the school. However, he quit the team early last season while on suspension for academic reasons.

Maxwell played LB at Kentucky, compiling 80 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 quarterback sacks and two forced fumbles his senior season last year, earning Second-Team All-SEC honors.

“I knew I could play at this level,” Maxwell said. “But, after not getting drafted, not signing as a free agent, and not making it after trying out for the Bengals, I’m thinking it might be over. I was really going back and forth.”

To make room on the roster for these players, the Saints released free agent signings WR Chris Bell and LB Jason Beauchamp.
