The Saints made two changes to the roster

The Saints made two changes to the roster

On Tuesday, the New Orleans Saints signed tight end Kahale Warring. The team also released defensive back Jack Koerner in a related move. Last season, Warring, 25, played for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Houston Texans selected Warring in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of San Diego State. He recorded 31 catches for 372 yards and three touchdowns in 2018. He was injured for his whole rookie season and the first ten games of 2020. In his first six games with the Texans in 2020, he caught three catches for 35 yards.

Koerner is the Saints’ third undrafted rookie to be cut since the draught. Offensive lineman Eric Wilson and linebacker Joel Dublanko were the others.

After being released by Houston during training camp in 2021, Warring spent most of the year on the Buffalo Bills practice squad. He appeared in one contest, but didn’t record a reception. He’d finish the last two games in Jacksonville without catching a pass.

A former basketball player at 6’5” and 252-Lbs., Warring was expected to be a mismatch for opposing linebackers with the strength to develop as a blocker.

Warring played just one year of high school football prior to San Diego State. Coming out of college, he was considered an athletic project with the receiving skills to line up in the slot.

Warring will compete with Adam Trautman, Juwan Johnson, Nick Vannett, J.P.Holtz, and undrafted rookie Lucas Krull at tight end. Versatile weapon Taysom Hill is now also listed as a tight end for the team. The Saints tight ends were among the worst position groups in the NFL last season.
