One guy per team can come back from IR each season.

New Orleans Saints cut-down analysis

Click here for the complete list of New Orleans Saints roster moves.

Most significant move: The Saints have a history in recent years of finding obscure running backs (see Pierre Thomas and Chris Ivory). Theyíve done it again. Undrafted rookie Travaris Cadet made the roster. So did Thomas, Ivory, Mark Ingram and Darren Sproles. That leaves the Saints very heavy at running back, but thatís not a bad thing. Cadet almost forced the Saints to keep him by having a tremendous preseason. Now, the Saints have the upper-hand on any team looking for a running back. Sproles is likely untouchable and I donít see the Saints parting with Ingram, who joined them as a first-round pick last year. But Thomas and Ivory have shown they can do a lot of good things and the Saints could add a future draft pick if a team thatís desperate to add a quality runner is willing to make a trade.

Onward and upward: One of the best kicking battles in NFL history was won by Garrett Hartley, who spent the summer kicking against veteran John Kasay. Both have kicked in the Super Bowl and both kicked well this summer. I donít think there really was a clear winner. Kasay and Hartley finished in a dead heat and the Saints made the logical decision. They went with the homegrown guy, who still has four seasons remaining on his contract. As long as Kasay, 42, wants to keep playing he should be able to find another place to kick because he showed no signs of slipping with his preseason performance.

Whatís next: The linebacker corps still remains a question mark. Starters Curtis Lofton and David Hawthorne have been injured and itís unclear if theyíll be ready for the season opener. The only other linebackers on the roster are Scott Shanle, Jonathan Casillas, Will Herring and newly-acquired Barrett Ruud. Iíve got a strong suspicion the Saints will bring in a linebacker (maybe two) from somewhere else in the next few days.

Re: New Orleans Saints Final Roster Cuts

Yeah that's what I was thinking... One player on IR can come back that same season as basically the same thing as the PUP list. If that does go into effect this season then Nick Toon absolutely will be the guy they activate.

Re: Toon placed on IR

If that new IR rule goes into effect this year which I think it does then Toon and Johnson might be back this year.

Re: Triplett rumor: Walker and AA make the 53

Wait, they kept AA and cut Canfield? Welll, okay I can see that. I still call BS, but not as loudly. I don't see anyone on the cut list that gave me more of a warm and fuzzy than AA. Hope he comes into his own this season.

I'm reading it has to be someone that makes the 53. Rule can't be used before September 4.

He's on IR for the year, or until an injury settlement is reached.

Re: New Orleans Saints Final Roster Cuts

That sucks. I had high hopes for Toon. After seeing Marquis Johnson this preseason I thought he'd make an impact as well. Damn!

Until we trade Ivory to the Lions.
