Saints Waive An Offensive Lineman, Sign Another
The New Orleans Saints juggled their offensive line on Thursday, claiming offensive tackle Jerry Ugokwe off of waivers, after releasing offensive tackle Martin Wallace.
A 6-foot-7, 321-pounder, Ugokwe played his college football at William & Mary, before signing with the Indianapolis Colts as a free agent, following the 2017 NFL Draft.
Ugokwe had been on the Colts’ roster for the past two months, prior to being waived this week.
The 27-year old Wallace, who signed with the Saints on July 25, has appeared in one NFL game during his career, in 2013 with the Cleveland Browns.
Wallace, who played his college football at Temple, was waived with an injury designation, after missing practice on Thursday.
