Maher was signed one week ago after New Orleans learned of an injury to kicker Wil Lutz. Unfortunately, Maher reportedly sustained a groin injury while warming up for the Baltimore game, leading to Monday’s waiver.
Stevie Scott signed as an undrafted free agent following the 2021 NFL Draft. No other details have been shared in regards to a potential injury for the former Indiana Hoosier.
