New Orleans Saints shuffle roster including signing veteran CB Desmond Trufant

The New Orleans Saints executed several roster moves on Monday afternoon, infusing veteran experience at key positions and moving injured players to the reserve list.

A move to injured reserve this season only requires a player to miss three weeks against this year, after the same adjustment was made in 2020. The Saints moved kicker Wil Lutz, offensive lineman Will Clapp, and tight end Nick Vannett to the injured reserve list. They are eligible to make their earliest return after the week three matchup against the New England Patriots.

To fill those spots, the Saints made three signing official including last week’s reported signing of defensive tackle Montravius Adams, wide receiver Chris Hogan, and former Atlanta Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant.
