SEATTLE— The New Orleans Saints have re-signed quarterback J.T. Barrett to the practice squad, a source confirmed to NOLA.com. 

The news came mere hours after starting quarterback Drew Brees elected to undergo surgery for his torn tendon in the thumb on his throwing hand. Brees’ surgery is Wednesday.

The move was first reported by Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network.

The Saints most recently waived Barrett on Aug. 1, just days into training camp. After the Saints waived him, the Seattle Seahawks signed him on Aug. 10, and then waived him on Aug. 31. 

Barrett went undrafted out of Ohio State in 2018 and went to the Saints’ rookie minicamp. The Saints first signed him on May 3, 2018, and was subsequently cut from and re-signed to the practice squad 23 times last season. 

SEATTLE — The New Orleans Saints have waived second-year defensive tackle Taylor Stallworth.
