The Saints signed four players who were in their rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, including a former Mr. Irrelevant.

The Saints signed former Bears outside linebacker Cheta Ozougwu (the final pick of the 2011 Draft by the Texans), wide receiver Steve Hull, running back Derrick Strozier and offensive lineman Thomas Welch.

They also waived/non-football illness nose tackle Brandon McCray and waived guard Micajah Reynolds.

Welch has the most experience of the group, with 27 appearances and one start, spending time with the Patriots, Rams and Bills.
