Well Who Dat Nation, it's the final trimming for the Saints, as they have to cut the roster to 53 men today. I'll be updating this blog through the afternoon as word leaks out about players who didn't make the cut, though the Saints don't officially have to turn in their final roster until late Saturday afternoon.
Check back here (and remember to hit "refresh) to get the lastest on the Saints roster cuts. And, if you're keeping score at home, Click HERE to view my full roster predictions...
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.
Andy tanner. The brother not chronicalized on biopic FULL HOUSE makes the team it seems like. Two thumbs up for this one
I hope Sean is right about cutting Roby. I didn't see anybody that can replace him. Wasn't the best route runner, but he has speed and hands.
Toby cut no surprise to me with other WRs emerging. Sproles returns kicks . Just wonder who will take that ace gunner role is my is my only concern
next man up
super saint, they had a few guys that did really well this preseason on returns that are gonna make the team at WR's. Love Roby but he was expendable
Not Surprised about Roby
Not a surprise with Roby, He's a great special teams player, but that's all. Tanner can play Special Teams and play WR if needed
Come on RG4!
Tanner has great hands, I think He will come away with some clutch plays this season.
They will regret not holding on to RG4.
Seneca Wallace was ran out because he was threatening Drew's job.
No one will pick him up
No one will pick him up so he will be on our practice squad. I believe He has potential for the future.
Griffin is good, need to replace Daniels, as heir..Like they seem to be trying to keep the best a atheletes, natural players of the game and Who Dat, types that showed the passion to be members of da Saint Nation!
I heard Seneca was threatening Kaepernick's job too, that's why they cut him. LOL
I thought Richardson did well, am I thinking of another player?
Y did they cut jay Richardson he made plays????
Lol, guess that why SW is not in Seattle anymore either!!!
Not sure bout Richardson cut eirher: KG had him locked in on prediction roster. Did Avaris make some off the bubble steps, or maybe another wrinkle..i don't know either..
Cuting Richardson can only mean someone with more skill was pickup
All things aside we got to have D -Who Dat
Rufus Johnson didn't make the cut either, i wonder if they will try and put him on the practice squad.
i understand he is cut also....didn't he do some kick returning?
ESPN is reporting this?

I really hope RG4 don't get picked up sorry Courtney Roby man we love u best of luck and thanks for all the thrills over the years Congrats Big Andy Tanner WHO DAT
Tanner over Parker, that's just crazy and with all the injuries at OLB & DE why would u cut a play maker like Richardson. He will be on another team by Monday.
