Saints Waive DE Mitchell Loewen & Sign TE Garrett Griffin

The New Orleans Saints waived DE Mitchell Loewen with a non-football injury designation and signed TE Garrett Griffin to a contract, according to Nick Underhill of The Advocate.

  • According to Underhill, Griffin still needs to receive clearance from the Air Force to play for the Saints and a decision has yet to be made as of now.

Loewen signed on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas just a few days after this year’s draft, so his stay in New Orleans was obviously short lived.

During his college career at Arkansas, Loewen recorded 31 tackles, 3.5 tackles for a loss, two sacks, and two pass defenses.

Griffin wound up going undrafted after the Air Force over a month ago, so this will be his first opportunity with an NFL game.

During his four-year college career, Griffin caught 41 passes for 678 yards receiving (16.5 YPR) and eight touchdowns over the course 23 games. He also added 27 yards rushing on two carries.
