The Saints waived Lasco (neck) on Wednesday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Lasco was an exclusive-rights free agent after he spent the entire 2018 season on the Physically Unable to Perform list with a bulging disc he initially suffered late in 2017. The 26-year-old is apparently healthy after the extended absence and will look to find a new team for 2019.

Lasco last saw NFL action in November 2017 when he suffered a bulging disc injury and spent the entirety of the 2018 season on the Saints' Physcially Unable to Perform list. The 26-year-old has no official timeline for his return but hopes to be ready for Organized Team Activities in the spring.
Lasco was waived Wednesday after failing his physical earlier in the week. While he's now back with the Saints, the team hasn't provided a timeline for when Lasco will be back in action.

Following a failed physical, the Saints are cutting ties with Lasco to free up a roster spot for veteran pass-catching back Shane Vereen. The 2016 seventh-round pick played jus 38 snaps in 2017, all on special teams. He was placed on injured reserve in mid-November after a scary collision caused a bulging disc in his neck and a concussion.
