RB Paris Gaines, an undrafted rookie out of Fresno State, has been signed to the roster.
Gaines is a 5'11, 228 pound bruiser who was a major weapon for Texans quarterback and first overall pick David Carr for the Bulldogs last season.
Gaines was originally with the Denver Broncos this offseason.
Injured defensive back Dee Moronkola, who hadn't contribute much all offseason so far, was waived to make room for the Saints. The team has 88 players on the roster.
