The New Orleans Saints have gotten an early start on their roster cuts tonight waiving/releasing a total of six players so far.

Earlier this evening Sean Payton announced the team was waiving three players, wide receiver Andy Tanner, safety Ty Zimmerman, and tackle Ty Nsekhe.

Then a few other cuts were reported via Twitter, inluding linebacker Victor Butler.

NFL teams must trim their roster to 75 players by 4pm EST this Tuesday, August 26th. So for those keeping score at home, the Saints still need to cut five more players. Here is how the Saints roster stands right now.
