METAIRIE, La. (AP) - The New Orleans Saints have re-signed tight
end Tory Humphrey and waived cornerback Leigh Torrence.
Humphrey, who also plays on special teams, had been waived
earlier in the week when the Saints added veteran linebacker Danny
Clark to the roster.
Saints coach Sean Payton says his decision to bring Humphrey
back and release a cornerback stemmed from his belief that starting
cornerback Tracy Porter has recovered enough from a recent bout of
left knee soreness to play well against the Minnesota Vikings in
both team's season opener Thursday night.
Payton also says starting linebacker Jonathan Vilma is probable
for the opener, while reserve running back Chris Ivory and reserve
linebacker Stanley Arnoux will not play.
