Saints To Waive DB Alden Darby, Sign OL Jordan Walsh


Josh Katzenstein reports that the Saints are planing to waive DB Alden Darby, who is currently dealing with an injury.

Beyond that, Joel A. Erickson reports that the Saints have also signed OL Jordan Walsh to a contract on Wednesday.

This comes shortly after Erickson reported that the team had signed DB Jamal Golden.

Darby, 24, originally signed on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State back in 2014. He lasted just a few months before he was among the Chargers roster cuts at the start of the season.

The Steelers later signed him to a future/reserve contract in January of last year, but he was once again unable to secure a spot on the 53-man roster. Darby signed on to the Saints’ practice squad at the start of the 2015 season and returned to New Orleans on a future/reserve contract.

During his four-year college career, Darby recorded 217 tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles, three recoveries, six interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown and 12 pass defenses.
