With backup tight end John Gilmore, Jr. ailing and unable to practice because of an ankle injury, the Saints have added a fourth tight end to the roster, former Saint Tory Humphrey.
Both players are primary used as blockers, not pass catchers.
Humphrey caught eight passes for 43 yards and a score in preseason. A Saint since December 2009, he appeared in the Saints' 2010 wildcard game in Seattle and was inactive but on the roster for Super Bowl XLIV.
The Saints waived offensive lineman Will Robinson, a street free agent signed in November.
