Andy Tanner’s Time With The New Orleans Saints Was Short Lived
The New Orleans Saints recently brought back defensive end Jay Richardson to help with their lack of depth on the defensive line. In doing so, the Saints had to cut another player to make room for Richardson. In this case, it was wide receiver Andy Tanner that got waived by the Saints in order to make room.
This must have been very disappointing for Tanner, since he finally made it on to the Saints’ 53-man roster after spending the majority of his career on the team’s practice squad. Tanner had a strong showing this past preseason and was rewarded with a roster spot. However, his time with the Saints was ultimately short lived, as he will become a free agent after clearing waivers.
Tanner is a good wide receiver and I would not be surprised if another team picked him up. Since the Saints are extremely deep at wide receivers, the team felt they could part ways with Tanner. Furthermore, Tanner’s chancing of hanging on to his roster spot decreased when the Saints brought back their former receiver, Robert Meachem.
It must be a tough pill for Tanner to swallow, considering how hard he worked to finally make it on the Saints’ roster. Tanner’s time with the Saints may finally be over, but don’t think he is done in the NFL. He is still a young, talented receiver and there are plenty of teams currently looking for help in their receiving corps. Tanner’s story just goes to show you that at the end of the day the NFL is a business, and more often than not you get the short end of the stick.
