WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- The New Orleans Saints signed tight end Richard Quinn, a former second-round draft pick of the Denver Broncos, and wide receiver Tobais Palmer on Tuesday, according to ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates.

The Saints waived three undrafted rookies: receiver Steve Hull (injured), nose tackle Tyrone Ezell and linebacker Marcus Thompson.

Quinn, 27, never panned out with the Broncos after being drafted out of North Carolina in 2009. He appeared in 29 games in his first two seasons but caught just one pass for 9 yards. He was then waived with a knee injury in the summer of 2011. Since then, the 6-foot-4, 264-pounder has bounced around with the Washington Redskins (twice), Cincinnati Bengals and Arizona Cardinals without finding a permanent landing spot.

Palmer, 24, signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2013 as an undrafted rookie out of NC State. Palmer (5-11, 178) appeared in just one game with no catches before being released. He then landed on the San Diego Chargers’ practice squad but was waived-injured in May.
