Jason David – On the Roster or Not?

There seems to be some confusion over whether embattled Jason David is on the Saints roster or not.

Both the NFL.com and NOLA.com (New Orleans newspaper, Times Picayune, site) list David as cut, however the official New Orleans Saints web site lists David as still on the roster. The team surprisingly kept 7 CBs and only 3 DEs in the final 53 man roster. Leading to speculation that the Saints were looking to pick up someone on the waiver wire.

One of the players being speculated about is Rob Ninkovich who was waived by the Dolphins and was a promising DE from the Saints 2006 rookie class, but was injured often and cut by the Saints last year. Ninkovich has several sacks and QB pressures against the Saints in the last Pre-Season game.

Update:

The league has confirmed that the inclusion of Jason David on the list of players cut was an error on the NFL.com website. Despite the wishes of many Saints fans, Jason David is still a Saint.
