The Saints swapped one safety for another on Thursday.
Herbie Teope of NFL Media reports that the team has signed Sherrod Neasman to their 90-man roster. Neasman tried out for the team at their rookie minicamp earlier this month. Mykkele Thompson has been waived in a corresponding move.
Neasman played in 14 regular season games and five postseason contests for the Falcons over the last two seasons and made six tackles. He was not tendered a contract this offseason by Atlanta and worked out for the Chiefs in April before landing with New Orleans.
Thompson was a fifth-round pick by the Giants in 2015, but missed his rookie year with a torn Achilles. He played one game in 2016 and wound up back on injured reserve with a knee injury.
