The New Orleans Saints continue the offseason player shuffle, announcing the re-signing of guard Shawn Flanigan and the release of offensive tackle Augustus Parrish.

Flanigan was originally released May 22 after being signed as an undrafted rookie out of the University of Sioux Falls.

To make way for Flanigan, the Saints waived tackle Augustus Parrish, a Kent State standout, who signed with the team right after this year's draft.

Parrish seemingly has a good shot at returning to the team at a later date.

The Saints seem to be indecisive on who they want or don’t want, releasing players only to re-sign them weeks later.

Also, the team signed yet another receiver to the growing arsenal of ball catchers on the roster, bringing the total to 11.

Rod Harper, 6'1" and 205, was a member of the Arkansas Twisters Arena League team before being signed by the Saints.

He was also acquired briefly by the Green Bay Packers in 2008 after going undrafted but was released before the start of the season.

Harper caught the attention of the Saints after setting a Twisters record with 14 receptions for 275 yards and seven touchdowns in their 82-59 victory over Corpus Christi a week ago.
