New Orleans Saints Release Bobby McCray, Patrick Ramsey, Nick Leckey, Kendrick Clancy; Cut Ladell Betts

Let the roster trimming begin!

Jason LaCanfora tweeted just minutes ago that the Saints have released DE Bobby McCray.

Saints have released DE Bobby McCray

Can't say I'm really surprised given the fact that the Saints cut him earlier this summer to save a bunch of money (not on their car insurance) and he's been outplayed by other defensive ends like Junior Galette and Jeff Charleston this pre-season. We'll always remember his veteran quarterback killing spree of 2009. 

Running back Ladell Betts has also been cut, per a recent Adam Schefter tweet...

RB Ladell Betts got cut in New Orleans.    

The good news about this is that perhaps it means the knee injury of Chris Ivory isn't too bad and the team expects his return in the near future. 

And sadly, former Tulane quarterback Patrick Ramsey was also released today, per a Mike Tripletttwitter confirmation...

Just confirmed that Patrick Ramsey has been released through agent Jimmy Sexton    

WWLTV reports via Twitter that DT Kendrick Clancy and C Nick Leckey have both been released as well...

DT Kendrick Clancy will be released by the Saints according to his agent.

C Nick Leckey has been released by the Saints.
