Provided by the New Orleans Saints, here is a transcript of Coach Sean Payton's press conference Wednesday afternoon at the team's practice facility in Metairie.

Kevin Spain/The Times-Picayune
New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton
Opening Statement:

"We signed linebacker K.C. Asiodu. We released Troy Evans, linebacker, Mark Bradley, receiver and we waived guard Tim Duckworth, corner Danny Gorrer and receiver Rod Harper. We'll be out again tomorrow. Today was cut short. We have league security meetings in about 10 minutes."
If the special teams coverage units were playing better this preseason does the departure of Troy possibly not happen?
"It really had nothing to do with how our special teams were playing. In fairness to Troy, we're rolling a lot of guys through in the kicking game to get evaluations. They're really two separate entities. Certainly it's a tough decision when you part ways with a player like Troy who has had so much to do with what we've done here and accomplished, but the two really don't go hand in hand."

I think it was to shake things up - If they are willing to fire the special teasm cpt. - who else will they let go??

I'm not big on playing all my starters on special teams just because ST stink it up. Here's a thought get another coach who can use the players given him and make it work on scheme.
