New Orleans Saints Release TE Eric Johnson

Again, per the Times-Pic.

The Saints have released tight end Eric Johnson. The eighth-year veteran has been unable to compete for a roster spot throughout the summer because of a lingering ankle injury, and he became expendable when New Orleans traded for Jeremy Shockey this week.

Johnson will be replaced on the roster by rookie cornerback Tracy Porter, who just finalized his contract with the team.

Things are getting crazy huh?
