Saints Announce Roster Moves: Arrington, Morgan, and Cadet Make the Team

The New Orleans Saints have made the official announcement of the roster moves they made to make it to 53-man limit for 2012.

The biggest news may be that the Saints will have quite a crowded backfield, with running backs Chris Ivory and Travaris Cadet making the squad. The team also elected to keep both receivers Joe Morgan and potential @superstar@ Adrian Arrington. In a mildly surprising move, C/G Matt Tennant is looking for work.

GM Mickey Loomis made the announcement, and it appeared on the team's official site.

Make the jump for the full announcement.

The New Orleans Saints announced today the team has made the following transactions to reduce their roster to 53 players. The announcements were made by Saints' Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis.

The team terminated the contracts of the following veteran players: WR Greg Camarillo, K John Kasay and TE Derek Schouman.

The following players were waived by the Saints: LB Kadarron Anderson, DE Braylon Broughton, LB Ezra Butler, QB Sean Canfield, DE Alex Daniels, TE Michael Higgins, CB Nick Hixson, S Jerico Nelson, G DeOnt'ae Pannell, T Aderious Simmons, WR Andy Tanner, C/G Matt Tennant and LB Lawrence Wilson.

The following players were placed on reserve/injured: RB Joe Banyard, S Jose Gumbs, CB Marquis Johnson and WR Nick Toon.

The following players were placed on the reserve/suspended list: LB Ramon Humber and DE Will Smith.

The New Orleans Saints begin regular season play on Sunday, September 9 versus the Washington Redskins at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome (12:00 p.m./FOX/Saints Radio Network). The Saints' roster currently stands at the NFL-mandated 53 players. Practice squads may be established tomorrow afternoon following the end of the waiver claiming period.

So there it is, everybody. Let's get to discussing the ins and outs of who made it and who didn't and what it all means.

Does that reserve/injured list do anything for you? What about Tennant getting the axe?
