Saints Sign Three, Cut Two

The New Orleans Saints officially signed DE Anthony Lanier, DE T.J. Carter, and LB Wynton McManis to contracts and waived DT Jalen Dalton (injured) and OT Darrin Paulo

Anthony Lanier

Lanier, 27, wound up signing on with the Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of Alabama A&M back in 2016. He was waived with an injury designation coming out of the preseason and he later reverted to the team’s injured reserve list.

Washington waived Lanier from injured reserve with an injury settlement and he eventually signed on to the Chargers’ practice squad last year. The Chiefs signed him to a futures contract this past January before cutting him loose leading up to the draft. 

In 2017, Lanie appeared in 11 games and recorded 14 tackles, five sacks, a forced fumble, a recovery and six pass defenses.

McManis, 25, wound up going undrafted out of Memphis back in 2016. He later signed a three-year contract with the 49ers, but was waived during the preseason.

McManis was on and off of the 49ers’ roster during the 2016 season before eventually being cut loose a year later. From there, he signed on with the Calgary Stampeders and has spent the past three seasons in Canada.

During his three-year with Calgary, McManis recorded 104 tackles, four sacks, and four forced fumbles over the course of 43 games.
