New Orleans Saints claim R.J. McIntosh off waivers


The New Orleans Saints have claimed former New York Giants 2018 fifth-round pick DT R.J. McIntosh off of waivers. McIntosh was waived earlier this week, concluding his 18 career games with the Giants in which he had no starts, 18 total tackles, three QB hits, and two tackles for a loss. The roster move is accounted for on the 90-man roster by the Saints also moving WR Jalen McCleskey to injured reserve. It is believed that McCleskey's hamstring injury is not a major one, so as Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports, there may be an injury settlement forthcoming.
