Saints have tough roster decision
 
Will Smith defensive end for the New Orleans Saints was suspended for the first 2 game of the 2011 season. During the NFL lockout the StarCaps appeal was overturned and the court ruled in favor of the NFL after finding no “legal” way to block the suspensions. Will Smith started the season on the reserve/suspended list which means he did not count towards the Saints 53-man roster maximum.

Once Smith returns to the roster, the New Orleans Saints must cut another player to clear roster room, leaving them with a very tough decision that they must make in the next few days.

Currently the Saints are carrying two kickers, two fullbacks, and six wide receivers — and it would seem at first glance that these positions are the most obvious choice to reduce and clear the room needed for defensive end Will Smith.

With the way Kasay is performing is it time for Hartley to go to IR? We will find someone.

I agree about Hartley. We need the D line rotation.

Cut one of the FBs. No reason at all to carry 2.
