Saints sign new linebacker Asiodu
The New Orleans Saints have added second-year linebacker K.C. Asiodu to the roster, less than one day after the release of veteran reserve linebacker and former special teams captain Troy Evans.
Although the Saints did not immediately announce the signing of Asiodu, he was listed on the club's official roster and was on the practice field Wednesday.
Asiodu, who is 6-foot-2, 242 pounds, began his pro career last year when he signed as an undrafted free agent with the St. Louis Rams.
He was cut at the end of training camp, then spent stints during the 2009 regular season on the practice squads of both the Miami Dolphins and the Rams.
In college, he played for Central Oklahoma.
