The New Orleans Saints made a couple of moves on Wednesday.
The Saints released quarterback/tight end Tommy Stevens after selecting him in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Stevens played quarterback for Penn State and Mississippi State during his college career.
The Saints traded their sixth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft to the Houston Texans to move up and select Stevens.
New Orleans did make a signing to their practice squad on Wednesday.
They signed former Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun defensive lineman Christian Ringo to the practice squad, according to the team’s transaction report.
Starting defensive lineman Sheldon Rankins was placed on the injured reserve last week. The Saints add depth to the defensive line with Ringo, as the team did not have any defensive tackles on the practice squad before signing the former Ragin’ Cajun.
Ringo was selected in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers. He moved up to the active roster the following year. He then played for the Detroit Lions in 2017. Ringo spent one game with the Dallas Cowboys and five games for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2018.
