Saints Finalize Roster With 12 Cuts

Saints Cut Antonio Pittman
The New Orleans Saints announced on Saturday that they have waived RB Antonio Pittman, S Curry Burns, G Tim Duckworth, FB Kevin Dudley, DE Willie Evans, WR Tramain Hall, CB David Jones, LB marvin Mitchell, QB Tyler Palko, CB Anwar Philips, S Chris Reis and G Dave Yovanovits. The Saints also terminated the contract of DE Anton Palepoi.

Two of these cuts stick out as surprising; QB Tyler Palko and RB Antonio Pittman. The release of Palko is surprising because Head Coach Sean Payton had talked about keeping a roster spot open for him because of his exceptional play this preseason. Pittman being released is more surprising because the Saints basically wasted their 4th round draft choice. Look for Pittman to sign with another team soon.

Now that the Saints have made their final roster moves to set the roster at the maximum 53 players they are gearing up to face the colts in the season opener on Thursday night.
