METAIRIE, La. - The New Orleans Saints waived second-year defensive tackle Malcolm Roach and brought veteran receiver Kevin White back to the practice squad Tuesday.

Roach is a Baton Rouge native who played high school football at Madison Prep Academy. He originally signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2020.

He appeared in six games for the Saints this season with two starts, making seven tackles and recording an interception.

The team designated him to return from injured reserve Monday, a day before waiving him. If he clears waivers, he could potentially return to the Saints on the practice squad.

White has been a frequent presence on the Saints transaction wire this season, bouncing around between the practice squad and active roster.

The former top-10 pick has played mostly a special teams role, catching one pass (on five targets) for 38 yards in five games this season.
