Saints Sign Sharrod Neasman
The New Orleans Saints have added another defensive back to their roster.
The team inked safety Sharrod Neasman on Thursday, while waiving safety Mykkele Thompson.
The 26-year old Neasman, who played his college football at Florida Atlantic, signed with the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent following the 2017 NFL Draft.
A native of Sarasota, Florida, Neasman appeared in three games as a rookie for the Falcons in 2016, before appearing in 11 more last season.
In 14 career games, the 5-foot-11, 213-pound Neasman has compiled five tackles.
Thompson, who played his college football at Texas, was signed to the Saints' practice squad on December 29th of last year, prior to signing a reserve/future contract with the team in January.
