ESPN Reports...
New Orleans Saints: The Saints cut defensive tackle Grady Jackson on Monday, one day after he served a one-game suspension for what team officials called "conduct detrimental to the team," ESPN's John Clayton reports.

Jackson failed to stay at the team's hotel on the Saturday night before the game against the Carolina Panthers. Even for home games, the Saints have a rule about staying together at the same hotel the night before the game.

Jackson was suspended without pay, and he missed Sunday's 17-14 win over the Bucs.

Wow....this is a shocker.

I really don\'t like our DL depth right now. Guys like Kenny Smith and Kendrick Allen won\'t be able to say they didn\'t get fair shots after this.

I think Ford is coming back, and with Howard coming back Whitehead can move to DT
Hmmm....
[b:f75c489e38]1st string
DE Howard
DT Sullivan
DT Whitehead / Ford / Allen
DE Grant

Not a bad starting DL huh?

Haslett said he thought it would be better if Grady was\'nt here with all the young players on this team. Grady\'s money is guarenteed so looks like the Saints cancer hits again. Yea Tweeky I like that line rotation as well but when will it hit the field?

I saw Ford on the sidelines Sunday. Maybe he\'s ready to play finally. Can\'t say this was totally unexpected.

:casstet:

That Cancer Hazlett needs to keep his stinking hands off of Rick Venturi\'s defense and let the man coach his unit.

If he wants to go wrecking a unit, why doesn\'t he start on the underperforming offense?

What a ball bust on the Deadskins .

Deadskins originallly came sniffing around for Jackson during preseason and the Saints said No.

Deadskins were so desperate they signed Russell and now Jackson is clear .

They sure were bad last night, Collinsworth was blasting the skins as harshly as I\'ve heard a commentator go at a team on national T.V. Snyder must be banging his wife. Spurrier is losing control of that team.

Couldn\'t we have gotten something for him after the season? If the money is guaranteed, that means we still pay him, right?

Obviously, we gave him what he wanted. He was playing well; someone will have him in uniform by the weekend.

Kinda odd how many players we have to get rid of each year... does the team practice near a nuclear waste dump?

No this was the last year of his contract, he would be a free agent next year. His contract is guarenteed for full payment the remainder of this year. I believe that is only if no one else signs him ,then we only have to pay the differance if his new contract is for less money.

He must of pissed Haslett off good with his pinky problem not to even try to keep him around for depth. After reading that article about Whitehead and watching the effort Horn and some others are giving playing through injuries I do like the tone it sets about the effort expected on this team.

Ihave heard rumblings about Stallworth\'s not playing as well.
