The New Orleans Saints made an addition to their practice squad on Thursday, at a position they needed some insurance.

The team signed tight end Jerrell Adams, formerly of the New York Giants and Houston Texans, to their 10-man practice squad.

To make room on the practice squad for Adams, the team released offensive tackle Nate Wozniak.

The Saints were looking for depth at the tight end position after started Jared Cook left Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers with a concussion.

Selected by New York in the 6th-round of the 2016 NFL Draft out of South Carolina, Adams played two seasons for the Giants (2016-2017), compiling 24 receptions for 214 yards and one touchdown.

Waived by the Giants prior to the start of the 2018 season, the 26-year old Adams spent that season on the practice squad of the Texans, before playing in one game for them earlier this season,

The 6-foot-5, 254-pound Adams was released on December 3.
