Saints add WR Tobias Palmer and TE Richard Quinn, release three players

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — The Saints made a number of transactions Tuesday to turn over the bottom of their roster.

The team signed wide receiver Tobias Palmer and tight end Richard Quinn. It also released wide receiver Steve Hull (injured), nose tackle Tyrone Ezell and linebacker Marcus Thompson, according to the league transaction wire.

Palmer (5-foot-11, 178 pounds) went undrafted out of N.C. State in 2013 and signed with Jacksonville. He had two stints on the Jaguars’ practice squad and spent one game on the active roster. After being released, he hooked on with the San Diego Chargers’ practice squad. He was waived with an injury designation in May.

Denver selected Quinn in the second round of the 2009 draft out of North Carolina. He remained with the Broncos through 2010, catching one pass for 9 yards. He since has spent time with Washington and Cincinnati.

The 6-foot-4, 260-pound Quinn spent training camp with Arizona last year and returned to the Redskins for part of last season. He has been active for 30 games throughout his career. He is considered to be a better blocker than receiver.

Hull, Ezell and Thompson were all undrafted rookies. ESPN first reported the moves.
