According to a league source, the Indianapolis Colts have claimed cornerback Danny Gorrer off waivers from the New Orleans Saints.
Gorrer, who had a pair of special teams tackles in pre-season action this month, was waived by the Saints earlier this week, and will take the roster spot of veteran cornerback Marcus McCauley, who has been "Waived/Injured" with an undisclosed injury.
The 6-0, 178-pound Gorrer originally entered the NFL with the Saints, signing with the club last April as an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M. Gorrer tallied seven tackles and a pass defensed or the Saints during the '09 pre-season, but was cut at the end of training camp and signed to the Saints' practice squad.
Signed by the St. Louis Rams off the Saints' practice squad midway through the '09 season, Gorrer appeared in three games for the Rams, totaling 5 tackles (4 on defense, 1 on special teams) and a pass defensed.
Gorrer started his first NFL game in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals.
