New Orleans Saints' official transactions and roster moves from July 27 to August 4 during training camp.  The following transactions include waiver requests, assignments via waivers, terminations, free agent signings, reserve list, and practice squad additions and deletions, and trades were reported to the NFL by the Saints organization.

Note: Linebacker Kwon Alexander's transaction has not been reported from NFL headquarters.  The official announcement is pending.

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton discussed the team's recent transactions on Wednesday, August 4 with local media.

“I have one transaction to announce. Keith Washington went on to the reserve list and we signed Adonis Alexander. It was a 1-for-1 transaction and keeps our roster at 90 players.”

Was Keith Washington’s injury a season-ending Injured Reserve designation?

“No. He has a wrist injury. It doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a season-ending injury, but we put him on the reserve list.”

Can you comment on the return of Kwon Alexander (LB)?

“All offseason he’s someone we’ve paid close attention to where he’s at with his rehab (torn Achilles). He’s someone we wanted to have back. It was just a matter of working out the right contract. He’ll get into the facility today. We’ll be slow with his acclimation. He’s done a great job with his rehab, but the worst thing we could do is to throw him right back into practice. He’ll be with us on the roster and in meetings, but there’ll be a little bit of an acclimation period for him before he’s ready to go."
