The Saints began whittling down their roster this week, releasing several players ahead of schedule.  Come Tuesday, NFL rosters must be pared down to a maximum of 75 players, which means this will be the last chance for several players to take the field in black and gold.

As we count down the last 50 days until the New Orleans Saints begin their regular season in Atlanta, on September 7th, we're getting to know a little bit about those players who have signed on to bring home another Lombardi trophy.

Today, we take a brief look at wide receiver Seantavius Jones and guard Senio Kelemete!

So, with no more ado:


#15 WR Seantavius Jones (Rookie)

The New Orleans Saints picked up Seantavius Lee Jones as an undrafted free agent out of Valdosta State after this year's draft.  He is football smart and has a good size and length to go along with his skills as a receiver.  However, he is currently fighting for a spot on the practice squad, at best.  With another year spent improving his bulk and strength, his movement and pass-catching ability, he might compete for a roster spot with an NFL team next year.  Or he could get picked up by a team that is truly desperate for wide receivers this season.

3 yr(s) / $1,530,000.  Average $510,000 per year through 2016.

#65 G Senio Kelemete (2nd Year)

Pronunciation: "SENN-ee-oh" "KEL-uh-MET-tay"
Senio Kelemete is the only offensive lineman in NFL history to catch a pass in his debut game.  That game, in which he caught a deflected pass and lumbered forward for ten yards, is the only game in which Kelemete has appeared through the two seasons since he was drafted out of the University of Washington, in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

The Arizona Cardinals released Kelemete at the end of his second preseason, and New Orleans immediately signed him to the Saints practice squad, where he spent the entire 2013 season.  This preseason, he had a chance to fill in for starting guard Ben Grubbs, when the veteran sat out of training camp with an undisclosed injury.  Despite trying to make the most of his opportunities, however, it will be difficult for him to make the final roster.  If he doesn't break the final 53, he may get another chance next season, after spending a second year on the practice squad.

1 yr(s) / $495,000.  The Cardinals are on the hook for almost $100,000 in dead money for Kelemete this season.
