The New Orleans Saints and the rest of the 31 NFL teams have until 3:00 p.m. CT on Saturday to trim their rosters to 53 players. The league voted to eliminate the 75-man cut down, so there will be a lot of player movement over the next two days. Head coach Sean Payton said in his post game presser on Thursday night that the Saints will make cuts over Friday and Saturday. From our count, we had 89 players entering this thing.

Go here to keep up with final cuts on Saturday.
