Saints re-sign Hightower, McGlynn

METAIRIE, La. (AP) The New Orleans Saints have brought back veteran running back Tim Hightower and offensive lineman Mike McGlynn, two days after cutting both players while making roster changes for the season opener at Arizona on Sunday.

Receiver Seantavius Jones and fullback Toben Opurum, who had been moved from the practice squad to the active roster, have been waived as part of Monday's moves to place the two veterans back on the roster.

If Jones and Opurum clear waivers, they could wind up back on New Orleans' practice squad.

Hightower, a former Cardinals running back, has been trying to resurrect his career with New Orleans after missing three seasons because of complications from a serious knee injury. McGlynn is in his eighth pro season.
