Saints Re-Sign CB Elbert Mack, Release LB Barrett Ruud
For the third time since June, the New Orleans Saints have signed cornerback Elbert Mack in hopes of adding depth to their secondary. To make room for Mack, the Saints released seldom-used veteran linebacker Barrett Ruud, according to the league's transaction wire.
Mack will serve as an insurance policy in case starting left cornerback Jabari Greer, who re-aggravated a groin injury in Sunday's 31-24 victory over the San Diego Chargers, isn't able to return in time for the Saints' Oct. 21 game at Tampa Bay.
Mack was originally signed in June before the team released him prior to the season. He was re-signed Sept. 18, only to be released Oct. 3.
