Being that Johnny Patrick cost us about as much as a glorified UDFA I'd say the cap situation had nothing to do with his release. He was just awful.

His release only saved us 269,000

The New Orleans Saints have released veteran tight end David Thomas and waived cornerback Johnny Patrick, according to a league source.

Thomas held a salary cap number of $2.2 million with a base salary of $1.5 million for 2013, which was the final year of his contract. Patrick was only set to make $555,000 in base salary in 2013 with a cap figure around $740,000.


There are a few interesting prospects at TE that can be got 5/6/7th rounds.

Every penny counts!

Found this little pickle...

http://blackandgold.com/saints/33332...ouisville.html (Second pick of 3rd round: Saints take CB Johnny Patrick out of Louisville)

I actually vaguely remembered our draft chat about him. He didn't sound to great from the start... especially for a 3rd round pick.

I really like the crop of TE's coming this draft. Lots of athletic guys that can stretch the field and be had in the later rounds. The position has slowly evolved from the traditional blocking guys to the more athletic types this past decade. I wouldn't mind at all having our own Gronk/Hernandez attack here.

Perhaps Patrick was the locker room snitch from a while back???

Re: Holder: Saints Cut Dave Thomas, Johnny Patrick

I always liked Thomas, he always played hard and was good at both TE and FB but he is getting older and has had a bunch of concussions soo I don't think this was a bad move.

Re: Holder: Saints Cut Dave Thomas, Johnny Patrick

I think cutting Patrick is a clear indication that they are reverting back to man coverage with the DBs - even though we don't yet know who'll be the new secondary coach - since Patrick's skill-set was better suited for zone.

Who knows, maybe he'll clear the waivers?!
