Saints Officially Sign 14 To Practice Squad

The Saints announced they have officially signed 14 players to the practice squad on Sunday. 

John Leglue was previously included on this list but Nick Underhill says he’s no longer being signed. 

The full list includes:

  1. LB Joe Bachie
  2. LB Anthony Chickillo
  3. LB Andrew Dowell
  4. WR Bennie Fowler III
  5. TE Garrett Griffin
  6. CB Kemon Hall
  7. WR Lil’Jordan Humphrey
  8. DL Margus Hunt
  9. WR Juwan Johnson
  10. RB Tony Jones Jr
  11. TE Tommy Stevens
  12. OL Calvin Throckmorton
  13. G/C Cameron Tom
  14. DB Keith Washington II 

Chickillo, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2015. He was waived at the start of the 2015 season and later signed to the team’s practice squad.

From there, Chickillo was promoted to the Steelers’ active roster a few weeks into the 2015 season. Chickillo signed a two-year, $8 million extension with the Steelers last year. 

The Steelers released Chickillo back in March and he signed a deal with the Saints in May. 

In 2019, Chickillo appeared in 11 games for the Steelers and recorded 15 tackles and a half sack.

Hunt, 32, is a former second-round pick of the Bengals back in 2013. He played out his four-year, $3,671,100 rookie contract with the Bengals before agreeing to a two-year contract with the Colts for the 2017 season. 

Hunt returned to the Colts last year on a two-year, $9 million contract, but was unfortunately released in March in a move that cleared $4 million of available cap space for Indianapolis. He signed a one-year deal with the Saints later on. 

In 2019, Hunt appeared in all 16 games for the Colts and recorded 17 tackles and no sacks.
