An Updated Prediction of the Saints 53-Man Roster

With another preseason game under their belt and slightly more game film from which to base my decisions, I've revamped my 53-man roster prediction from last week. 

On defense, surprisingly, I've made no changes other than adding Nate Bussey. Everything else remains the same as it was last week.

I've made a few adjustments on the offensive side of the ball however. To make room for Bussey I eliminated guard Brian de la Puente. At offensive tackle I have removed Jon Stinchcomb and moved up Jordan Black. At tight end I got rid of Tyler Lorenzen and added Joe Morgan at wide receiver. Finally, at fullback, I simply switched out Korey Hall for Jed Collins.

Really the toughest decision was with Mitch King. I've love to include him but I just don't know who I would get rid of. Making room for Bussey by eliminating de la Puente was difficult enough. 

I only put five players on the practice squad so there is some room there. 

Make the jump to check out my entire 53-man roster. Then discuss!
