With linebacker Parys Haralson most likely headed to the IR with a torn pectoral muscle and cornerback Keenan Lewis still dealing with the effects of a concussion he suffered in Saturday’s wild-card win over the Eagles, the Saints have decided to bring in another player on the defensive side of the ball before they travel to Seattle this weekend.

According to the Baton Rouge Advocate, safety Jordan Pugh tweeted that he signed with the Saints.

Pugh played four games with the Redskins this season, but was released in late October. He had one tackle and one interception of Peyton Manning before getting his walking papers.

He played 13 regular season games for Washington in 2012 and also saw action in their playoff loss to the Seahawks, which means this weekend’s game will be his second postseason date with Seattle in as many years. (Photo: Dustin Bradford/Getty Images)


When he attended Plano West, Jordan was part of the first team in school history to make it to the playoffs. Jordan and the rest of his team left a mark on Plano West and a legacy for many players to follow. At Homecoming this year, he introduced the Jordan Pugh Pushing Upward Going Higher Award that will be given to a student at the end of the school year. It will be awarded to a football player that exhibits leadership qualities on and off the field and performs well in the classroom.
