Last night, we received news of the roster moves the Saints made to bring the 2012 roster down to the 53-player limit.
And with all those moves announced, the Saints have now updated their depth chart, injured reserve list, and reserve/suspended roster, too.
I have brought all those charts and text boxes to you here, after the jump, so that we may see it all from that perspective and then further and better discuss what got started last night.
From that nola.com piece, Mike lets us know what action will be taking place today with the Saints player personnel officials and coaches:
The Saints will begin filling out their practice squad on Saturday afternoon after players pass through waivers. And it remains possible that they could make changes to the active roster based on other players who were released around the league.
So, be sure to check back with CSC throughout the day for all the practice squad news and roster updates...
