Update: Current New Orleans Saints Free Agency & Roster Breakdown

New, comments

By my calculations, the Saints would have 91 players under contract or agreed to terms after yesterday's signings of Carl Nicks, Zach Strief, Clint Ingram and Cecil Newton. I could be wrong or missed a roster move, of course, but if I'm not, that would mean the Saints have released a player and not made it known yet.

Keep in mind the roster on their official website is out of order, so I've got nothing to go on but my own research.   

They still also need to sign first round pick Cameron Jordan, their one remaining 2011 draft pick holdout. If the Saints are at or above the 90-player roster limit, they will need to release another player when Jordan officially signs his contract. 

Below you'll find my latest attempt at a roster breakdown by position. Then you'll be treated to a complete, up-to-date roster (as of the publishing of this post) and full sortable Saints roster. It includes Cameron Jordan, the remaining 2011 draft pick yet to be signed. That's followed by a list of the Saints remaining unsigned free agents, also in an easy to use, sortable table. But first, a quick recap of the yesterday's action. 

In case you missed it:

Saints Sign Carl Nicks

Saints Sign Clint Ingram

Saints Re-Sign Zach Strief

Saints Sign Cecil Newton
