Didn't see that coming.

Right tackle Jon Stinchcomb has been released by the New Orleans Saints.
Stinchcomb had returned to practice with the Saints last week after sitting out the previous two workouts to rest his surgically repaired left knee. During practice on sunday sixth-year pro Zach Strief was lined up with the starting unit ahead of longtime starter Stinchcomb.
tinchcomb's performance dropped off in 2010 after he made his Pro Bowl debut in 2009, though that was largely because of a significant knee injury that Stinchcomb played through.

Payton on Stinchcomb's release "A very tough decision. He has been a leader for us. It's what makes this time of year difficult."

Wow, I have to say.... even though I figured that something would happen, I didn't expect it to happen this early. Stinch was a liability.

Totally did not see that coming. To those of you who say thats great, Stinch IS a pro bowl Tackle, and they do not come easy especially this time of year. Yea he was bad, and has been injured, but is Streif a better option? I hope to hell there is some veteran out there we can pick up, because if not we are in deep ****. This is not the year to go ****ing around with your offensive line, and we already replaced Goodwin.

Who else is out there that we could go after????

Soooooo, how about Tennant at LG and Nicks at RT?

Nicks would be a flat out dominant RT in this league, and they are apparently real high on Tennant at either OC or OG.
