Two Roster Moves the New Orleans Saints Must Make

But there are two moves the Saints should make to clear roster spots for upcoming talent.

New Orleans currently lists two full backs and two kickers on the roster. Not many teams have the luxury of keeping two of either of these specialty players heading into the regular season.

Veteran kicker John Kasay was re-signed this off season to compete with Garrett Hartley, who missed most of last season with a hip flexor injury.

Hartley is much younger and has a bigger leg but has struggled with inconsistency during his pro career.

New Orleans must make a commitment to Hartley and parts ways with Kasay who is clearly on the extreme backside of his career.

Full back Korey Hall was signed in free agency before the start of last season and it was thought he would become the teams starter at the position,

But the Saints brought in journey man full back Jed Collins to compete with Hall, and while the team liked both, it was Collins who was named the starter.

Collins has since solidified his spot on the roster as the teams primary full back, leaving Hall as the odd man out.

The importance of releasing both Kasay and Hall come into focus more in consideration to certain on the bubble players.

Hard to argue those two moves if they happen.

Kasey will be cut just to avoid having his entire contract guaranteed. We'll call him back when necessary.

The extra FB will likely be cut in order to keep Cadet.

I look for a weekly roster shuffle of LB's until we get healthy.

Yeah, I don't see either one of them making it. Kasay might have a chance to catch on somewhere else. Hall also seems to be the odd man out.
You know, it's funny that the NFL is getting away from full backs and we have two. Makes you rethink things doesn't it?
