The New Orleans Saints have signed safety Jordan Pugh today, with the player himself confirming the news on Twitter.

The 25-year-old has featured in 45 games over the past four seasons and will add some much-needed depth to the Saints roster.

Pugh posted on Instagram: "It's official I'm a saint!! @neworleanssaints #whodat nation lets get it!!!!" along with a picture of the Saints emblem.

His agent Steve Weinberg has also confirmed the news.

The Safety came to the NFL in 2006 as a 6th round draft with the Carolina Panthers. In 2012 he was signed by the Washington Redskins as a replacement for the injured Jordan Bernstine.

He was released, resigned and then released again by the Redskins back in October, but has now found a new home in New Orleans.

There has been no confirmation from the Saints themselves as yet, nor has there been any mention as to who he will replace on the roster - but there has been some suggestions linebacker Parys Haralson could be the one to miss out.

The Saints progressed to the divisional round of the play-offs with a dramatic late win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday.
