Another roster move by the New Orleans Saints is likely about to be announced although it isn’t official yet and it involves the return of wide receiver Adrian Arrington.
Arrington was released by the Saints on Friday not long after the announcement of the temporary restraining order on the suspensions of linebacker Jonathan Vilma and defensive end Will Smith.
Along with Arrington, fullback Korey Hall was released and offensive tackle Marcel Jones was placed on injured reserve. After roster exemptions for Vilma and linebacker Barrett Ruud, the Saints roster stood at 50 players.
Offensive tackle Bryce Harris was signed today off the Atlanta Falcons practice squad to replace Jones and Arrington was seen a few minutes ago in the Saints locker room by several members of the media in a casual mood.
Arrington’s return makes sense because the Saints were looking for a giant leap from the oft-injured receiver who recently had meniscus surgery. The coaching staff has raved about his performance up to that point.
Also the move makes even more sense because of a severe collision that receiver Devery Henderson endured yesterday and he left the game with a head injury.
The status of Henderson isn’t known but it depleted the Saints at the receiver corps thrusting rookie Joe Morgan in the spotlight with an inconsistent performance which was shared with fellow receivers Marques Colston and Lance Moore.
