This signing slipped under the radar, but the team announced Wednesday they reached an agreement with the 6-3 238 pound former Charger.
Anthony Waters is entering his third NFL season after being drafted by the Chargers in the third round of the 2007 draft.
He saw no action his rookie season but started in seven games in 08 recording 3 tackles while also contributing on special teams with 3 tackles and a fumble recovery.
Waters played college ball at Clemson where he is the leading tackler as well garnering an honorable mention All-ACC selection his junior year.
His college career was cut short when he suffered a torn ACL his senior year.
By no means is Waters signing a blockbuster move by the Saints, what it affords them is a young talent to groom.
He may only contribute on special teams, he may just be a body for camp, or he may even earn a starting spot.
Only time will tell where Waters lands with the Saints.
