Saints Sign Wide Receiver To Active Roster

He will play Saturday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

The New Orleans Saints have elevated wide receiver Kirk Merritt from the practice squad for Saturday's game against the Browns.

Merritt was promoted to the active roster for each of the last two games, however, he did not record a catch while playing just nine of his 35 snaps on offense.     

With Chris Olave and Jarvis Landry being ruled out for Saturday's game, expect Merritt to be a little more involved and to slot in as the team's No. 4 receiver behind Rashid Shaheed, Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway on Saturday.

The twenty-five-year-old was an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas State.
