2:00 p.m. - Saints will cut CB Chris Carr, per a league source
2:40 p.m. - Saints will waive QB Ryan Griffin. If he's not picked up by another team, he's a candiate for the Saints practice squad.
2:55 p.m. - Fan favorite WR Andy Tanner will make the roster, per my sources.
3:05 p.m. - Saints will release LB Ray Shipmen
3:10 p.m. - Saints release WR & special teams ace Courtney Roby. Wow - A bit of a surprise move. It shows they want a pure receiving threat, and they've got other guys who can fill his role on special teams.
3:38 - Saints waive TE Keavon Milton.
4:16 - Saints release Andrew Tiller
4: 35 - OLB Jay Richardson cut
4:39 - DT Isaako Aaitui cut
