The New Orleans Saints brought back a familiar face Tuesday.

The Saints re-signed rookie cornerback Arthur Maulet to the practice squad after he cleared waivers, according to a source familiar with the transaction.

Maulet, whom the Saints waived Monday, was elevated from the practice squad to the active 53-man roster on Saturday for Week Three’s game against the Carolina Panthers, and he contributed 16 snaps on special teams during the Saints’ 34-13 win.

The move over the weekend provided depth on defense and flexibility on special teams, as the Saints were down cornerbacks Marshon Lattimore (concussion) and Sterling Moore (chest) against the Panthers.

Maulet, who first joined the Saints in May as an undrafted free agent out of Memphis, was with the team for the flight to London.

He is available for practices while the Saints prepares to take on the Miami Dolphins in Week Four action.
