One Last Prediction of the Saints 53-Man Roster and Final Cuts

New, comments

The Saints got an early start to trimming their roster last night after eliminating 17 spots plus learning of Will Smith's suspension, which moves him onto the reserve/suspended list. By my calculations, that leaves nine spots left to free up by 5pm today to get down to the league mandated 53-man limit. 

Based on those moves, I'm taking one last crack at listing who I think will get cut, waived or placed on injured reserve today, followed by my final 53-man roster prediction and then a recap of the moves the Saints made yesterday. 

Make the jump!
