The NFL is investigating whether the New Orleans Saints illegally stashed linebacker Todd Davis in their training facility after they released him at a time the Denver Broncos were claiming him off waivers, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The Saints waived Davis last week, but planned to sign him back to their practice squad. The Broncos claimed Davis the same day and wanted to him in Denver on Friday for practice but they could not get a hold of him because he was in meetings in New Orleans.
Davis met the Broncos in St. Louis on Saturday.
The Saints could be facing a “stiff fine.”
