Saints Waive DE Greg Romeus, Sign LB Donavan Robinson

It looks like it wasn't meant to be for Greg Romeus and the Saints. They cut him loose today and signed LB Donavan Robinson. Romeus was drafted last year, but was sent to injured reserve due to lingering knee ailments. After surgery, he was reportedly doing well in OTAs before recently tearing the ACL and MCL in his other knee. Best wishes to him. I feel for him and hope he gets his knees well and gets another shot with either the Saints or a different team.

Here's more on LB Donovan Robinson:

Robinson, a 6-3, 250-pound linebacker, entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Jackson State, signing with the New York Jets in May, with whom he spent the offseason. Prior to entering the NFL, he started 31 games at Jackson State, finishing his college career with 181 tackles and 30 sacks. As a senior in 2011, he was a Football Championship Subdivision honorable mention All-American and second team all-SWAC selection after recording 58 tackles (34 solo), 23.5 tackles for a loss, 16 sacks, four pass defenses and one fumble recovery. In 2010 the Milwaukee native was named to the all-SWAC second team after leading the conference with 18.5 tackles for a loss and ranking second with eight sacks.
