Offensive tackle Tavon Rooks
Wide receiver Brandon Coleman
Inside linebacker Todd Davis
Cornerback Terrence Frederick
Tight end Nic Jacobs
Wide receiver Seantavius Jones
Offensive guard Antoine McClain
Nose tackle Lawrence Virgil
We still don’t know who the Saints’ kicker will be, though it doesn’t appear like it will be Ryan Succop. What we do know is the Saints have added seven players to their practice squad. They are allowed to add up to ten, and the fact that free safety Pierre Warren isn’t already on this list of names is a big surprise to me. Almost everyone expected him on the 53 man roster...

Champ Bailey was released by the New Orleans Saints on Saturday but the 36-year-old future hall of famer is not ready to hang up the cleats just yet.
Bailey still wants to play with his agent saying that his client was healthy and ready.
“He had a plantar (foot) problem which is resolved. He just missed too much time for the coach’s evaluation to be complete.” said agent Jack...
Well, training camp is done. All four of the preseason games are in the books. By the time you read this, Mickey Loomis and Sean Payton will have put the finishing touches on the final 53-man roster. In essence, the only thing left is to face off against those "Dirty Birds" and tee it up, right? Here in the South, we practically consider Opening Day as an unofficial holiday...
The New Orleans Saints trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit Saturday, releasing some notable players in the process.
In addition to letting both of the kickers they had in camp go, Shayne Graham and Derek Dimke, they also parted ways with former Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey and wide receiver Robert Meachum.
Bailey was thought to have a role in the team'...
Interesting news coming out of Saints camp on Saturday, as the team announced a bevy of cuts and waived numerous players.
According to NewOrleansSaints.com, cornerback Champ Bailey, wide receiver Robert Meachem and kicker Shayne Graham were among six players who had their contracts terminated outright.
17 players were waived by the team as well, including kicker Derek Dimke, wide...
Champ Bailey’s tenure with the New Orleans Saints didn’t last too long. After signing a two-year, $3.8 million contract this past offseason, the veteran defensive back was a part of the Saints final cuts on Saturday. Saints are cutting CB Champ Bailey. — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) August 30, 2014 This is somewhat of a surprising move considering that the Saints owe Bailey...
Today the New Orleans Saints began roster cuts. You can follow all the cuts here on NFL Draft Diamonds. Saints cuts: OL Jason Weaver RB Derek Strozier

Offense: 25 total
QB (3): Drew Brees (starter), Luke McCown (backup), Ryan Griffin (depth).
I thought McCown would get displaced by Griffin but he’s defended his roster spot admirably. I don’t think Griffin would get through waivers so I have the Saints carrying three quarterbacks.
RB (5): Mark Ingram (starter), Khiry Robinson (rotation), Pierre Thomas (rotation), Travaris...
The Saints will need to waive (or place on IR) a total 22 players by Saturday, or more if they pick up players that were cut from other teams. My cuts and 53 man roster are below. I’ll throw one caveat, though. I think the Saints will sign an offensive tackle if someone they like becomes available. Bryce Harris would be the obvious exchange in that scenario. But for now I’ll...
The Saints played very few key players, but that didn’t stop Robert Meachem, Champ Bailey and Parys Haralson from all getting banged up. As far as I could tell it doesn’t seem like it will jeopardize their ability to play in Atlanta, as Haralson and Meachem both returned, and Bailey seemed to dislocate a finger. Comically the Saints had one penalty in this game, it was by far...
