Saints News, 7/18/14: New Orleans Saints' Projected Roster

Mike Triplett from has an interesting breakdown of what he projects to be the Saints' roster to start the season. Not much to argue with as far as who he thinks will make the final cut. Wouldn't be surprised if it shakes out the way he projects. We might be lucky that the biggest roster question looks like back-up QB. Triplett writes, "It’s not easy to cut veteran Luke McCown from this roster. He has been a great fit in the Saints locker room. But if the Saints can trust the younger (Ryan) Griffin in that backup role, they don’t need to keep three quarterbacks." Agreed! In other news, the Rob Ryan pic below is EPIC!
