Saints Sign LB Tony Steward

The New Orleans Saints signed LB Tony Steward to a contract on Monday, according to Evan Woodbery.

  • The Saints also waived S Michael Caputo and QB Griffin Neal.

Steward, 23, was taken in the sixth round of last year’s NFL draft by the Bills. He managed to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but he was placed on waivers earlier in the week.

The Patriots elected to sign him to a contract just a few weeks ago before cutting him loose last week, so his time in New England was obviously short lived.

In 2015, Steward appeared in seven games for the Bills and recorded two tackles. Buffalo later placed Steward on season-ending injured reserve with a back injury.
