EUGENE RELEASED

EUGENE RELEASED: The Saints released quarterback Bruce Eugene this week.

The record-setting Grambling State standout faced an uphill battle after signing with the Saints as an undrafted free agent in April. He was the fifth quarterback on the team's roster and was trying to get his weight down and improve his conditioning.

Eugene has a strong arm and accomplished résumé. Eugene, 6 feet, 255 pounds, set a Division 1-AA record with 140 career touchdown passes and ranks second with 13,350 career passing yards.

Don't worry. he is good enough to displace a lot of #3 Qbs in the league right now and I do not think it will take long for some team to pick him up. I predict he will be on some team come the beginning of the season.

..the guy is a sentimental favorite, but I don't think he's got it. Just fighting the weight alone...

Nothing against the guy. Hopefully he'll hook upi with another team.

I really think Eugene has amazing talent. I also thought he would either make the final roster as the 3rd QB, or at least on the practice squad. Hopefully he continues to work hard, and he can get picked up by another team.

I would laugh my gonads off if he were signed by the Raiders and beats out every QB they have for the starting job.
