The News Orleans Saints trimmed their roster by two players on Thursday.

The team waived receiver Xavier Rush and fullback John Robinson-Woodgett.

The Saints needed to make room on their roster, after signing linebacker Bryan Braman and fullback Zach Line on Wednesday.

Rush, a Tulane product, signed with the Saints less than two weeks ago. The 24-year old accumulated 99 career receptions for 1,349 yards and 12 touchdowns for the Green Wave..

Robinson-Woodgett signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent following the 2017 NFL Draft.

After playing linebacker at UMass in his first three seasons of college football, Robinson Woodgett moved to fullback, where he rushed for 68 yards and one touchdown last season.
