The Saints shook up their scouting ranks by parting ways with area scouts Brian Adams and Ryan Hollern last week, a source confirmed.

The moves came late last week, after the initial rush of scouting changes that often come after the draft.

New Orleans also let go of college scouting director Rick Reiprish this offseason and replaced him with Jeff Ireland, who officially serves as the assistant general manager.

Adams and Hollern both spent six seasons in New Orleans. Prior to becoming an area scout two seasons ago, Hollern served as the team’s combine scout.
