Saints sign Fassitt, waive Humphrey

The New Orleans Saints have signed cornerback Greg Fassitt from

their practice squad and waived recently acquired tight end Tory

Humphrey.

The move, announced shortly before the Saints played Sunday

against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, marked the first time Fassitt had

been assigned to a 53-man regular season roster after spending the

past three seasons on the practice squads of Chicago, Tampa Bay and

New Orleans.

Fassitt, who is 5-foot-11, 186 pounds, played in college at

Grambling State in north Louisiana.

Humphrey, a fourth-year pro, signed with the Saints as a free

agent in the past week. He spent the last three seasons with the

Green Bay Packers.
