The New Orleans Saints released their morning transactions on Wednesday, and it addressed the other vacancy on the team’s roster. The team is adding defensive back Shiloh Keo, formerly of the Denver Broncos.
Keo, a former fifth-round pick of the Houston Texans in 2011, played in 42 of his first 48 games in the league. At one point during the 2013 season, he named the team’s starting safety after Ed Reed was released. Unfortunately, an injury forced Keo out of 2014 action, and the Texans released him.
Keo would latch on with the Cincinnati Bengals on a reserve/future deal in February 2015, but would get released in September during final cuts. Keo would join the eventual Super Bowl Champion Broncos team in early December after he tweeted to Wade Phillips.
@kaleo10 Keo--Josh was with us in camp and first 4 games-u know how much I think of u--hope that little Keo is doing well— Wade Phillips (@sonofbum) December 2, 2015
He’d recover the onside kick in the AFC Championship game that ensured the Broncos would go to Super Bowl 50, earn his ring, and would hang close to the organization until he was released on Oct. 25.
The Saints also officially announced the addition of linebacker Sam Barrington.
