The Saints waived John Denney, Jake Lampman and Blair Walsh.

They sign Austin Carr, Jake Kumerow and Anthony Zettel to the practice squad.

I thought it was smart, but why sign then release him? I thought we would keep him "in the program" so he wouldn't have to go through COVID protocols etc if we needed him? I'm probably missing something.

re: January 13 Roster Moves - Walsh Released
There are a couple of possible reasons for the quick turnaround. Bringing the players into the facility often requires them to be tested for the coronavirus along with everyone else each day, keeping their records up to date and easing the time limit for their activation should an absence pop up at the last minute. It’s likely that both Walsh and Denney will be reported to visit the team facility again in the days leading up New Orleans’ Divisional Round game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers so that their testing history remains accurate.

And as for the quick sign-and-release: this may have been done to guarantee both players receive a pay check for the week as members of the practice squad, even if they were technically only on the roster for a day. Both of them are in town practicing away from their teammates in quarantine, so it makes sense to find a way to pay them for their time (within the framework of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, of course).
