The New Orleans Saints added a boatload of rookies and college free agents over the last week, so it’s time for the official website roster to update jersey numbers — not just for the new additions, but also to some inconsistencies with veteran players like Tanoh Kpassagnon.

Kpassagnon wore No. 92 during his four years with the Kansas City Chiefs, and that’s what he was initially assigned upon signing with the Saints earlier this offseason. But it’s the same number used by starting defensive end Marcus Davenport, so it’s good to have some clarity. Kpassagnon is now listed at No. 90, which was recently used by nose tackle Malcom Brown.

It’s unclear how often Kpassagnon will play now that the Saints are suddenly crowded at defensive end. He figures to rotate into the lineup behind Davenport, Cameron Jordan, and first-round draft pick Payton Turner, along with third-year pro Carl Granderson. New Orleans doesn’t lack for depth at the position but it would be great for some of those players to separate themselves from the pack. Maybe Kpassagnon can hit his stride in a new system, a new city, and a new jersey number.
