Another former Texas Longhorns standout will be on the NFL sidelines, as the New Orleans Saints added Lil’Jordan Humphrey to their 53-man roster on Wednesday.

Humphrey was added to the Saints as a priority free agent following the NFL Draft, but was moved to the practice squad in the final round of cuts. Prior to that point, Humphrey caught four passes for 103 yards and one touchdown throughout the preseason.

In his final year at Texas, Humphrey managed 1,176 yards and nine touchdowns before declaring for the NFL Draft early.
