Saints sign ex-Seahawks RB Jones, cut kicker Carney

The New Orleans Saints have signed running back Julius Jones and released kicker John Carney.

The team also announced Tuesday that it signed safety Matt Giordano, a free agent, and waived running back DeShawn Wynn.

The Seahawks released Jones on Oct. 5 to clear a roster spot for Marshawn Lynch, whom they acquired from the Buffalo Bills in a trade. Jones, 29, restructured his contract and took a hefty pay cut right before the start of the season, then carried the ball just 12 times for 30 yards in two games for Seattle this season.

Jones, the Seahawks' leading rusher the previous two seasons, joins a Saints backfield that has been hurt by injuries and bad bounces.

The Saints have lost two of three games since running back Reggie Bush fractured a bone in his lower right leg. Pierre Thomas, the team's leading rusher last season, has missed the past two games with a left ankle injury. Last Sunday, backup Ladell Betts lost a fumble that was returned for a score and tipped a pass that was intercepted in the Saints' 30-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Carney signed with the Saints in September to fill in for the team's struggling kicker, Garrett Hartley. Hartley is poised to reclaim the job with Carney's departure.

Giordano is a six-year veteran who played for the Indianapolis Colts for four seasons.

Wynn has played in four games for the Saints this year and made two tackles on special teams.

The Associated Press contributed to this report


Discuss.... good move or bad? Don't guess they had a whole lot of options to begin with.

Wtf was the point of having Carney on the roster to being with? Hartley is a good kicker, granted he missed a couple that just about every kicker misses every now and then throughout their careers that they shouldn't miss, but the guy was solid gold last year and won games for them with that leg.

Cowboys might . . . might take a look at Carney.

Buehler has been ok, but I still don't trust him at medium distances for some reason.

Too many kickers out there to have patience with one that couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. They could have put him on IR, but it wouldn't have mattered. When a kicker gets in a slump like that, the only way to get over it is to get a fresh start somewhere else.

yeah and he's having one hell of a fresh start. Beuhler needs to get his act together. How are you going to make field goals from the 40, hit those in, yet miss from the redzone?!?!
