Saints Release WR Greg Camarillo

Jim Brown-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

In an odd move that comes at a time when other Saints receivers are either injured or performing poorly, the Saints have released veteran receiver and Drew Brees workout partner Greg Camarillo.

Larry Holder suggests that this is a move to free up roster space for LB Ramon Humber, who had previously been serving a three-game suspension for a violation of the league's substance abuse policy.

Camarillo was signed back by the Saints two weeks ago when the Saints endured multiple injuries at wide receiver after being originally cut in the final training camp cuts. Camarillo, 30, was active for the games against Carolina and Kansas City, but never recorded a single catch.

The Saints haven't signed a new player, but linebacker Ramon Humber did just wrap up a three-game suspension and would be scheduled to return to the team this week. So releasing Camarillo could be to make room for Humber.

With Marques Colston still recovering from foot injury and Joseph Morgan not yet displaying much consistency, it's interesting that they would feel confident enough in their receiving corps to let Camarillo go. Has RB Travaris Cadet fully made the transition to WR?
