The New Orleans Saints added a player to their practice squad on Thursday.

The team signed defensive back Justin Hardee.

The 23-year old Hardee, who entered the league in May as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois with the Houston Texans, is making the switch from  receiver to cornerback with the Saints.

The 6-foot-1, 194-pound Hardee accumulated 72 catches for 841 yards and a touchdown at Illinois.

The 6-foot-1, 194-pound Hardee, who caught one pass during the preseason while with the Texans, compiled 72 catches for 841 yards and a touchdown during his career at Illinois.

The Saints had a spot open on the practice squad, after releasing offensive lineman Kristjan Sokoli on Wednesday.
