Week 14 Roster Moves

The Saints waived CB Chris McAlister after a three week stint with the team. No reasons were given for the release, although McAlister did struggle out on the field at times during the game Sunday against the Redskins. The effects of a lingering PCL injury have taken a toll on his knee as he could not return to the form that made him a feared All-Pro CB with the Baltimore Ravens.

In his place, the Saints signed free agent CB Marcus McCauley, a 2007 third round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings. McCauley has played 27 games in his NFL career, all but one with the Vikings. He did see some action in the Saints season opener as a member of the Detroit Lions. He also had a brief stint in Tampa Bay this season. He adds another young, athletic body to the depleted Saints secondary.

Saints LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar is out for the season as the team placed him on the Injured Reserve List. Dunbar is the 13th Saint on the IR list this season, the most in the NFL. He injured his hamstring during the first quarter of the Saints victory Sunday.

    To think that the people of the gulf coast are depending on the Saints to bring them salvation from the devastation of a hurricane that occurred six years ago…well I guess that’s why they call em Saints fans.Completely hopeless. Just like the city. Who Dat you ask? Well its just a bunch of corrupt thieves micromanaging every crap a person takes to see if they can steal it from you,and if they cant they try to make money off it.So anyway Go Saints I hope you lose in the last second of the NFC championship so New Orleans can have something to blame for its lack of recovery from a flood six years ago. Whatever you do Dont Blame Yourselves Greed IS Good

      It takes the “squirrel minded” to bring up Katrina when it has ZERO to do with football. Just a guess…are you a fan of one teams we stomped??? Embarrassed? Or just a sore loser? I mean either way it’s ok, really. The only people I ever hear bring up Katrina are people who aren’t from here. We got over it and so should you. We are not depending on the Saints to bring us salvation…we just love to have another reason to party! GEAUX SAINTS!!! And by the way Katrina was a little over four years ago not six. Don’t use big numbers if you can’t count. But again, that’s ok too. Whatever, ignorance and shallow mindedness go hand in hand.
