The Saints did some housekeeping Tuesday afternoon by terminating the contract of linebacker Cheta Ozougwu.

Ozougwu became injured in July and never played or practiced with the team. He spent the season on the physically unable to perform list. Ozougwu recently failed a physical.

The Houston Texans took Ozougwu with the last pick of the 2011 draft. He then spent the next two seasons with the Chicago Bears before hooking on with the Saints.
