The Saints have manicured their roster following this past weekend’s rookie minicamp, adding six players while waiving three, putting their roster at the league’s 90-spot max.

Defensive end Baraka Atkins, receiver Brent Leonard, defensive back Korey Lindsey, kicker Jose Maltos, running back Khiry Robinson and guard Jeremiah Warren all were signed after their tryouts.

New Orleans waived running back Shawne Alston, cornerback Ryan Lacy and center Ryan Lee.

Atkins, Lindsey and Warren all have some kind of NFL experience.

Atkins is a two-year veteran of the league, appearing in 21 games for Seattle as a fourth-round pick in 2007. He spent 2012 training camp with the Dallas Cowboys.

Lindsey was a seventh-round selection by Cincinnati and spent the past two seasons on the active roster with Arizona and Indianapolis while also spending time on the practice squads of the Cardinals, Jaguars and Redskins.

Warren spent his rookie season in 2012 mostly with the New England Patriots’ practice squad.
