In an unexpected move, the New Orleans Saints on Monday announced they have released defensive end Bobby McCray, who started for the team during its run to the Super Bowl title this past season.
McCray played two seasons with the Saints after signing as an unrestricted free agent in March 2008. He started eight of 32 games and made 59 tackles with 7½ sacks, three pass defenses and a forced fumble. The 28-year-old played the first four seasons of his NFL career with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He replaced Charles Grant in the Saints' starting lineup after Grant was lost for the season due to injury and started all three of the team's playoff victories.
