METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints have re-signed tight end Tory Humphrey and waived cornerback Leigh Torrence.
Humphrey, who also plays on special teams, had been waived earlier in the week when the Saints added veteran linebacker Danny Clark to the roster.
Saints coach Sean Payton said Wednesday that his decision to bring Humphrey back and release Torrence stemmed from his belief that starting cornerback Tracy Porter has recovered enough from a recent bout of left knee soreness to play well against the Minnesota Vikings in both teams' season opener Thursday night.
