WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. — The Saints waived defensive end Glenn Foster with a failed physical designation and signed cornerback Travis Manning.

Foster landed on injured reserve last season after injuring his knee against the Detroit Lions in Week 7. He was placed on the physically unable to perform list prior to training camp and spent the last week rehabbing off to the side.

Manning was part of a trio of cornerbacks who worked out for the Saints on Thursday. His signing comes as rookies P.J. Williams and Damian Swann battle injuries. Keenan Lewis also recently suffered an injury but took part in Thursday’s walkthrough.

Manning (6 foot) played safety during his first three years at Northwest Missouri. He converted to cornerback last season and finished with 32 tackles, 10 pass breakups and one interception. He had seven interceptions over three seasons at safety.
