The Saints worked out four this week and have signed former University of Tennessee TE Ethan Wolf per a league source.
The Saints have signed tight end Ethan Wolf (University of Tennessee), per league source. He’s 6-foot-6, 260 pounds. Wolf was on the Rams practice squad last year. He tried out with four other TEs this week.— Nick Underhill (@nick_underhill) August 18, 2020
With Tennessee he played in 50 games, starting 47. He had 91 receptions, 998, yards, averaging 11 yards per reception, and 7 touchdowns.
Ethan is still trying to find his way in the NFL. The Saints take flyers on this type of player every year. It will be up to Mr. Wolf to prove he deserves to be here.
It’s worth noting Josh Hill missed the first practice with pads in training camp with what Sean Payton described as a tweak. This could actually translate into he’s doomed. You just never know with Payton.
What do you think of this signing?

The Saints waived DB Tino Ellis with an injury designation.— Nick Underhill (@nick_underhill) August 19, 2020
Ellis was originally signed as an undrafted free agent out of Maryland. Per Testudo Times:
[Ellis] accounted for 13 tackles and two pass breakups in six starts during his senior campaign before suffering what head coach Mike Locksley classified as an “upper body injury” against Purdue Oct. 12, ending his season.
