WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- After trying out several players on the lower field at the Greenbrier on Tuesday morning, the New Orleans Saints cut ties with three players in order to make room for two.
The Saints signed Richard Quinn, a former Denver Broncos second-round pick, and wide receiver Tobais Palmer, waiving undrafted rookie free agents Marcus Thompson (linebacker), Steve Hull (wide receiver - injured) and Tyrone Ezell (nose tackle).
Quinn, 6-foot-4 and 264 pounds, was drafted in 2009 and had only one reception for nine yards during his three years in Denver. He played with Washington in 2011 and Cincinnati in 2012.
Palmer, 5-11 and 178 pounds, signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free angent out of North Carolina State in 2013. He spent that season on the practice squad, appearing in one game before he was released. He was then signed to the practice squad in San Diego, only to be waived/injured in May.
