An Updated Prediction of the Saints 53-Man Roster: Version 3.0

New, comments

Really not too many changes to my Saints 53-man roster predictions since the Saints defeated the Raiders in their third preseason game. Only two significant moves actually. 

I obviously eliminated defensive end Alex Brown, whom the Saints released earlier this week. In his place, I have moved Will Smith to the active roster since we're a week away from the start of the season and we haven't heard anything about his suspension. 

Since the Saints signed kicker John Kasay to the their roster, I also had to add  him to mine. To make room I went ahead and moved Joe Morgan to injured reserve. 

Mitch King and Brian de la Puente are my final two cuts and I wish there was just a little more room on the roster to fit these two guys. 

I only have five players on the practice squad so there is some room there. 

Make the jump to check out my entire 53-man roster. Then discuss!
