Saints Sign Jake Powell
The New Orleans Saints added a tight end to their roster on Thursday.
The team re-signed Jake Powell, while releasing quarterback J.T. Barrett.
Powell signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent following the 2019 NFL Draft, before being released with a non-football injury during rookie minicamp in May.
The 6-foot-6, 240-pound Powell played his college football at Monmouth, where he caught 15 passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns as a senior last season.
His senior campaign was limited to only five game, due to injuries.
The 26-year old Powell did a Mormon mission in college, making him an older rookie.
