We won’t have an official list until the Saints announce it, but it’s a start.

We’ll get an official announcement from the New Orleans Saints later today, but for now I’m trawling through the 400 or so photos from Friday’s minicamp session on the Saints website.

It’s an incomplete list, and more importantly unofficial. 80-plus players try out at rookie minicamps with just a handful of them signed to the team, so there’s plenty of duplicate numbers simply because there aren’t enough to go around. Do not go out buying any jerseys until the Saints make it official after roster cuts in September.

As always, a handful of notable veteran free agents are trying out at minicamp:

Additionally, a few of the team’s big free agent signees have shared their jersey numbers on social media:

Quick takes - I really hope Boston Scott and Kamrin Moore can get out of those numbers soon. We don’t need the curses of Travaris Cadet and Brandon Browner hanging over our heads. I would much prefer Marcus Davenport get out of that hefty #92 and into the much more aesthetic #99, but it looks like practice squad linebacker Adam Bighill is still holding onto it.

Like I said, we’ll know more soon, and don’t take this as gospel. It’s just another fun data point to keep track of.
