NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Saints have traded return specialist Jalen Saunders to New England, a source confirmed to FOX 8.

Saunders was competing with Marcus Murphy for the position though it was clear from Sean Payton's post-game comments that Murphy had the inside track to the job.

Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported the trade.
