Saints Roster Cuts Begin, Waive DeAndre McDaniel and Jarred Fayson

New, comments

The New Orleans Saints have already begun making roster cuts today and they've started with undrafted free agents S DeAndre McDaniel and WR Jarred Fayson. McDaniel tweets the news via his Twitter account:

Saints waived me today! Don't feel sorry for me! God has a plan. Find a new home soon!!

But don't worry, he's not mad because the team never even gave him a chance to crack the lineup:

I would be mad if I had a chance and failed, but I wasn't even getting the chance! So I know God has a plan

Fayson also told his Twitter followers the news of his release:

Just got waived by the saints. Extremely thankful for the opportunity they gave me. Back to FLA to rehab my knee.

Thanks to the #WhoDat nation for the support throughout training camp.

McDaniel was probably the most highly touted rookie among this years undrafted free agent class so this will probably come as disappointing news to those Saints fans who thought he might actually contribute to the team. Apparently, Fayson had knee issues. That most certainly didn't help his chances.

We will keep things updated here on Canal Street Chronicles as best we can today.
