this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Did we just release him? He has an interesting tweet. Life throws a lot of curve balls at you, you just have to roll wit the punches...

Huh, maybe he just found out he has a STD? That's what he was talking about on the "High school network"

Maybe he's the odd man out with Will Smith coming back?

Odd, you'd think we'd wait until the last minute to release someone.

I can think of some other choices to make but I guess they will try to stick him on the PS but with some teams looking for RB's that's a big risk passing him through waivers. If he has been released. This is just speculation based on his tweet.

Unfortunately it's a numbers game. Maybe he's a little depressed that while he made the team, he hasn't had any snaps. It's unfortunate but at least he's collecting a game check.

The league minimum is what??? $425,000/year??? Surely, I would not be depressed with a $425,000/year paycheck.

Well if he was cut after week 2 he'd only get 1/8th of that salary, which is still $53,125. Not bad at all.

Can never tell. Maybe he was just waxing philosophical

not sure on this... but if he made the regular roster, is his salary not guaranteed for the year?
