News Sports: New Orleans is making two NFL staffing moves ahead of time for its 80-player roster on Tuesday.
The moves come two days before all NFL teams must meet the 80-player deadline Tuesday afternoon. The Saints need to move three more players on Tuesday to meet the deadline.
The New Orleans Saints released RB Devine Ozigbo and QB K.J. Costello on Sunday morning.
Ozigbo, 25, competed closely with Tony Jones Jr., rookie Abram Smith and specials teams past Dwayne Washington for a back-up running spot. He had seven 40-yard tackles, mostly lanyards, and two 7-yard receptions in Friday night’s pre-season loss to the Green Bay Packers. Before that, he made eight attempts in 26 meters against the Houston Texans.
