New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced today that the team has waived/injured DE Greg Romeus and signed LB Donavan Robinson.
Romeus was the one of the club's two seventh round draft picks in 2011. After missing his rookie season while rehabbing from a right knee injury suffered as a college senior at Pittsburgh, he suffered a torn left ACL and MCL in the this offseason's OTA's, which required surgery.
Robinson, a 6-3, 250-pound linebacker, entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Jackson State, signing with the New York Jets in May, with whom he spent the offseason. Prior to entering the NFL, he started 31 games at Jackson State, finishing his college career with 181 tackles and 30 sacks. As a senior in 2011, he was a Football Championship Subdivision honorable mention All-American and second team all-SWAC selection after recording 58 tackles (34 solo), 23.5 tackles for a loss, 16 sacks, four pass defenses and one fumble recovery. In 2010 the Milwaukee native was named to the all-SWAC second team after leading the conference with 18.5 tackles for a loss and ranking second with eight sacks.
