The New Orleans Saints made some huge noise on the final cut day of the offseason. When dropping their roster to 53, they made some really hard decisions. These are five of the most surprising roster cuts on the New Orleans Saints.
It isn't very surprising when a team cuts a kicker, but it seemed like it here. You will see why next.
The New Orleans Saints cut both of their kickers. They currently don't have one on their roster. The season starts in less than a week, and another kicker has to come on the roster. That will cause the current 53 man roster to be trimmed again.
This may have been a long shot, but many would have liked to see the local Tulane product make the team. He was called the "new Darren Sproles" by many. After the trade in the offseason, they need someone to be their third-down back. He could have eventually been there.
Robert Meachem returned to the Saints last season after a disappointing year in San Diego and immediately had chemistry with Drew Brees. Now, his career may be over. It will be interesting to see if he ends up with another team.
Champ Bailey is head-and-shoulders the top player on this list. The Saints just signed the cornerback this offseason. Now, he has to try to recover from a foot injury on the fly to see if he can land somewhere this season.
