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.

    I wouldn’t just call them camp bodies….there’s going to be some great competition.

    Don’t count out Strozier

    But any camp body still has a chance to be a roster body one day. A shot’s a shot.

    I’m sure Pierre Thomas was known as a “camp body,” also. It seems to have worked out well for him.

    Ozougwu is not even a camp body. Unless he’s on special teams, he shouldn’t see the field. Atrocious in run game, can’t rush the passer and unless he’s covering an OL he has no coverage skills. The fact he was even drafted as Mr. Irrelevant is beyond me

    I would gladly be a camp body with a chance of making league minimum…sir!!!!!
