NFL reporter Aaron Wilson broke the news on Tuesday evening of Ozigbo returning to New Orleans.   The Saints signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2019.   

Ozigbo played his collegiate football at the University of Nebraska from 2015 to 2018, where he rushed for 2,196 yards on 419 rushes and 21 touchdowns.

He had a decent training camp with the Saints but did not earn a roster spot after final cutdowns.   Jacksonville signed Ozigbo after clearing waivers.
