Saints Sign RB Zach Zenner

The Saints have signed running back Zach Zenner, as Ian Rapoport of tweets. He’ll serve as insurance in case Alvin Kamara‘s ankle keeps him from seeing the field this week. 

To make room, the Saints have dropped linebacker Stephone Anthony, their one-time first-round pick who returned this season. It’s possible that Anthony will return in the not-too-distant future, but for now, the Saints need the firepower in the backfield.

Zenner spent time with quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi while in Detroit, so it might not take him long to get acclimated in New Orleans. It’s also possible the Saints won’t need much from him on Sunday against the Cardinals if Kamara is able to suit up.
