The Saints 2014 active roster is here; see who made the cut



UPDATED 4:15pm CST

The New Orleans Saints have trimmed their ranks to 53 players on the active roster for the regular season.

The club has waived the following players:

C Matt Armstrong
CB Derrius Brooks
WR Brandon Coleman
ILB Todd Davis
K Derek Dimke
CB Terrence Frederick
WR Charles Hawkins
TE Nic Jacobs
G Marcel Jones
WR Seantavious Jones
T Tavon Rooks
RB Derrick Strozier
NT Lawrence Virgil
CB Trevin Wade
S Pierre Warren
T/G Jason Weaver

They have terminated the contracts of CB Champ Bailey, OLB Keyunta Dawson, K Shayne Graham, FB Greg Jones, WR Robert Meachem and T Thomas Welch.

Saints Sideline Reporter Kristian Garic says he's not surprised that the Saints are letting Champ Bailey go: "He doesn't play special teams. Patrick Robinson had a good camp and Brian Dixon plays special teams. It's hard to carry a player who is not a starter and doesn't play special teams."

Both kickers are gone! "I'm very surprised. I thought Dimke was the guy. It shows that the Saints weren't happy with either players' consistency. Now, before week one, the Saints will have their third kicker in the last two regular seasons," Kristian continued.
