News is slowly coming out about who made the Saints' final roster. Mike Triplett REPORTS that Garrett Hartley has won his position. Veteran kicker and last season's rescue replacement John Kasay was just released. A source also says that WR Adrian Arrington and DT Tyrunn Walker have made the team.
As for the roster casualties, a source confirmed that rookie linebacker Kadarron Anderson has been waived. Earlier Anderson tweeted, "It's been real NOLA. Best fans in the league." And rookie guard DeOn'tae Pannell was waived, according to Sirius NFL Radio's Adam Caplan.
The most interesting roster news so far is from a source SAYING rookie RB Travaris Cadet has made the final 53 roster. It's still unclear if this means the Saints plan to keep five tailbacks. I would be shocked if Chris Ivory was released. If anything, he might be traded to Detroit or somewhere, but a release seems unlikely. It looks like they plan to keep five. No word yet on WR Joe Morgan and the others, but stay tuned for updates. The roster must be trimmed to 53 by 8 PM Central Time.
