Saints Waive Paul Turner
The New Orleans Saints let go of a receiver who played his college football at both LSU and Louisiana Tech on Thursday.
The team waived Paul Turner to make room for newly-signed veteran running back Terrance West.
Turner signed with LSU out of West Monroe High School, playing in nine games in 2012, without making a catch.
The 5-foot-10, 195-pound Turner sat out the 2013 season, transferring to Louisiana Tech, where he caught 87 passes for 1,171 yards and seven touchdowns in two seasons.
The 25-year old Turner played in four games with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2016, hauling in 9 receptions for 126 yards.
The release of Turner opened a spot for West on the Saints' 90-man roster.
A third round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns, West has played four seasons in the league, accumulating 1,816 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns.
