Jon Stinchcomb discusses his release from New Orleans Saints
 
"I'm just really appreciative of the experience I had as a Saint, being a part of this organization, this team and getting to be a part of this community," Stinchcomb said.

When asked if the move came as a surprise, he said, "It's a possibility for all of us," then quickly said he's excited for longtime backup Zach Strief to get the opportunity to replace him as the Saints' starting right tackle.

"It's an opportunity he's worked tirelessly for for five years," Stinchcomb said. "I can't wait to see him out there in that role."

The bigger question is to fill in this blank.

Number -- is eligible.
Since Strief will have a different role now.

It's got to hurt. I remember being upset getting fired from a job I hated.

I think the most shocking thing about it is that this means he wasn't even good enough to be a backup...I mean we are paying him either way, what happened that he couldn't stick around even at 3rd string?

Roster space?

He was a backup for 2 years , moved to starter, made the pro bowl and won a SB. What happened to the OT that got everything he ever wanted out of football? He lived happily ever after. Best wishes to him and his family.

Thats a really good point. And it is too early to release players like him to make roster space. They still have to pay him, so why not just demote him at least long enough to try to work out a trade or something. Might be more to this story.

Best of luck to Jon in the future. Once a Saint....ALWAYS A SAINT!
