Pettway was released by the Saints on Monday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.
The Alabama product was released with a non-football injury designation, which could keep potentially-interested teams away from the 24-year-old. Pettway struggled to make a lasting impact during his only season in New Orleans.
Pettway spent the 2016 season on injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury, Josh Katzenstein of NOLA.com reports.
Pettway started training camp on the physically unable to perform list and was ultimately waived and placed on injured reserve. Having cleared waivers, he will look to compete for a roster spot with the Saints during the 2017 preseason.
