METAIRIE, La. The Saints have waived defensive end Greg Romeus, a 2011 seventh-round pick who was never able to remain healthy.
Romeus, a 6-foot-5, 267-pounder out of Pittsburgh, missed time in college with a back injury and came into the league after having knee surgery.
During organized team activities in 2012, Romeus tore the anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in his left knee.
The Saints' roster is now at 89.
