Saints Claim CB Danny Gorrer Off Waivers

Adam Caplan of reports that the New Orleans Saints announced that they have claimed cornerback Danny Gorrer off waivers from the St. Louis Rams.

Gorrer was waived on Monday as the Rams cleared space on their 80-man roster for the eight 2010 draft picks they signed.

The 6-0, 178-pound Gorrer originally entered the NFL with the Saints, signing with the club last April as an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M. Gorrer tallied seven tackles and a pass defensed or the Saints during the '09 pre-season, but was cut at the end of training camp and signed to the Saints' practice squad.

Signed by the Rams off the Saints' practice squad midway through the '09 season, Gorrer appeared in three games for the Rams, totaling 5 tackles (4 on defense, 1 on special teams) and a pass defensed. Gorrer started his first NFL game in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Gorrer is signed for the 2010 season with a base salary of $395,000.
