New Orleans Saints Announce Roster Cuts

New, comments

The Times-Pic has just released the full list of New Orleans Saints players who were cut today. Including Joey Harrington and Adrian Arrington, whose names were released earlier today, those players are:

Position

Player

WR Courtney Roby
WR Skyler Green
WR Matt Simon
RB P.J. Hill
RB Herb Donaldson
LB Anthony Waters
DT DeMario Pressley
G Tim Duckworth
CB Danny Gorrer
DT Early Heyman
TE Martrez Milner
TE Jermey Parnell
DE Paul Spicer
G/T Anthony Davis
T Michael Brown
C Digger Bujnoch
G Nate Bennett
S Chip Vaughn placed on IR

The only surprises here are the release of Paul Spicer, DeMario Pressley and Anthony Waters. Can't say we didn't see Chip Vaughn being placed on IR. He's just missed too much time for a rookie this pre-season. Chris Reis, Jonathan Casillas, Buck Ortega, Leigh Torrence and Rod Harper all survived the cut and have made the squad.

Here's a look at how the 53-man roster looks now:

Offense

Position Player Player Player Player Player Player
QB Drew Brees Mark Brunell
RB Pierre Thomas Reggie Bush Mike Bell Lynell Hamilton
FB Heath Evans
WR Marques Colston Robert Meachem Lance Moore Devery Henderson Rod Harper
TE Jeremy Shockey Darnell Dinkins Buck Ortega David Thomas
C Jonathan Goodwin Nick Leckey
G Carl Nicks Jamar Nesbit Jahri Evans
T Jammal Brown Jon Stinchcomb Zach Strief Jermon Bushrod

Defense

Position Player Player Player Player Player Player Player
DE Will Smith Charles Grant Bobby McCray Jeff Charleston Anthony Hargrove
DT Sedrick Ellis Kendrick Clancy Remi Ayodele
LB Jonathan Vilma Scott Fujita Scott Shanle Jo-Lonn Dunbar Jonathan Casillas Troy Evans Marvin Mitchell
CB Jabari Greer Tracy Porter Malcolm Jenkins Randall Gay Leigh Torrence
SS Roman Harper Pierson Prioleau Chris Reis
FS Darren Sharper Usama Young

Special Teams

Position Player Player
Kicker John Carney Garrett Hartley
Punter Thomas Morstead
Long Snapper Jason Kyle

You'll notice the depth chart contains Will Smith, Charles Grant and Garrett Hartley, all three of whom are suspended for the first four games of the season. They will not count against the 53-man roster during those games, so at least two players (David Thomas was brought in) will need to be signed to take their place in the interim. It appears the Saints are light at the defensive tackle spot so I would hope to see one of those signings be used on that position.
