Saints add 4 following rookie camp

Unfortunately, former Ragin' Cajun nose tackle Brandon McCray didn't make the cut.

METAIRIE, La. (AP) - New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says the club has added four players following last weekend's three-day rookie camp.

Loomis announced Monday that rookie receiver Steve Hull, rookie running back Derrick Strozier, veteran outside linebacker Cheta Ozougwu and veteran offensive lineman Thomas Welch were signed after taking part in rookie camp on a try-out basis. They're now expected to participate in offseason practices and training camp.

Strozier was a defensive back at Tulane, but is trying to make it professionally as playmaker on offense. Hull was Illinois' leading receiver last season. Ozougwu has seen action with Chicago and Welch has spent time with New England, St. Louis and Buffalo.

The club has also waived former UL Lafayette nose tackle Brandon McCray and former Michigan State guard Micajah Reynolds.
