Saints Roster Cuts 2014: Projected 53-Man Roster Update

Here's an updated version of my Saints 53-man roster. Spoiler Alert: I only made one minor change! Find out who's in and who's out.

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

The first round of roster cuts must be made by 4pm EST this Tuesday as teams must cut down to just 75 players. The Saints have already cut four players ahead of schedule, so they need to get rid of only 11 more players.

We talked yesterday about which players might get a visit from The Turk but I also wanted to provide my second crack at the Saints regular season Week 1 roster.

So here is my updated 53-man roster projection. Let me know what you think, whether you agree or not. For those paying attention at home, I actually made one, and only one, change: I switched out Shayne Graham for Derek Dimke. That's it. Why mess with perfection, am I right?

I debated getting rid of Ryan Griffin in favor of Luke McCown but with Sam Bradford now out for the season in St. Louis, I was concerned the Rams might try to sign him again like they did last year.

Of course, you can create your very own 53-man roster using the incredibly awesome interactive roster builder we created custom just for you guys!
