The Saints signed veteran DE George Johnson, according to ESPN's Field Yates. He should add depth in the wake of rookie Trey Hendrickson's ankle injury, along with DT/DE Sheldon Rankins, DT David Onyemata and DE Hau'oli Kikaha, among other options. Johnson, 30, has appeared in 42 career games with five career starts for the Buccaneers, Vikings and Lions. The 6-4, 265-pounder has six career sacks and two forced fumbles. To make room, the Saints released on-again/off-again OT Bryce Harris.
