New Orleans Saints sign WR Camarillo; place LB Chamberlain and OL Tupou on injured reserve

The New Orleans Saints will get back to work Monday to begin planning for their next preseason game against the Houston Texans on Saturday as well as the September 9th matchup against the Washington Redskins.  But the front office was in full swing today with set of roster moves.

It was announced that the Saints agreed to terms with free agent wide receiver Greg Camarillo.  Since entering the NFL in 2005 as an undrafted free agent, he has played for the San Diego Chargers(2005-07), Miami Dolphins(2007-10), and the Minnesota Vikings(2010-11).

Camarillo has had 142 career receptions for 1,686 yards for 5 touchdowns.  While he isn’t a premier wide receiver, Camarillo is likely being brought in to help out with the Saints injured wide receiver corps.

Adrian Arrington recently had surgery for a torn meniscus in his knee while Nick Toon has been rehabbing an injured foot for the last several weeks.  The latest casualty was Andy Tanner who injured his ankle on Friday during the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Although interim head coach Joe Vitt didn’t seem overly concerned with the injuries to all three, this move definitely raises some eyebrows that at least one of them may be more severely injured than is being let on.

On the rest of the injury front, the Saints placed linebacker Chris Chamberlain and offensive lineman Fenuki Tupou on injured reserve.  Chamberlain tore his ACL on Friday while Tupou has a triceps injury.
