New Orleans cut Barrett from their practice squad Wednesday, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Barrett was the odd man out in New Orleans, with both Taysom Hill and Teddy Bridgewater serving as backup quarterbacks. The Ohio State product will look to find a depth role elsewhere around the league.
Barrett has signed on to the Saints' practice squad, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.
The Saints chose to go with Taysom Hill as their backup instead of Barrett and the addition of Teddy Bridgewater last week left little room for the Ohio State product on the active roster. However, he'll remain in New Orleans and could find his way onto the active roster at some point this season.
Barrett was waived by the Saints on Saturday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Barrett was competing with Taysom Hill for the backup quarterback job in New Orleans for much of the preseason. The team traded for Teddy Bridgewater this past week and kept Taysom Hill on the 53-man roster, making Barrett the odd man out. Barrett could potentially join the practice squad if he clears waivers.
