Saints Cut Chris Reis, Pierson Prioleau and Others; Chris Ivory to PUP

The Saints aren't wasting any time trimming down to the necessary 53-man roster. And with more than 25 roster spots to eliminate, who can blame them. 

Apparently the earlier reports of Chris Ivory being placed on injured reserve are not true and he's actually been placed on the PUP list. That's better news.

Also incredibly surprising are the release of both Chris Reis and Pierson Prioleau. Right now that leaves just Jonathan Amaya and Isa Abdul-Quddus behind Malcolm Jenkins and Roman Harper. Perhaps moving Leigh Torrence to safety is a definite possibility. 

The Saints have also parted ways with both tight ends Tyler Lorenzen and Tory Humphrey, meaning the team is only two deep at the position with Jimmy Graham and David Thomas, unless Michael Higgins has made the team, which would be a surprise. Still on the roster are both fullbacks however, Jed Collins and Korey Hall, though that could change soon. 

By my count there should be nine more cuts/moves to be made get the roster down to 53.  

A full list is after the jump.

I'm also hearing like @miketripletttp that the Ivory/IR news isn't correct and that Ivory is actually on the PUP list via a league source.
