Saints waive DE Broughton
 
New Orleans Saints Waive DE Braylon Broughton

Broughton was originally signed as an undrafted free agent prior to the 2012 season.

New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced Monday that the club has waived DE Braylon Broughton.

Broughton, 6-6, 272, was originally signed as an undrafted free agent prior to the 2012 season from Texas Christian University where he was a three-year letterman. Broughton appeared in 40 games for the Horned Frogs, totaling 45 tackles (32 solo), 9.5 stops for a loss, three sacks, three passes defensed, two fumble recoveries and one blocked kick.

The Dallas, Texas native spent the 2012 offseason with the team before being added to the practice squad at the start of the regular season.

DE at 272 in a 3/4 would have to be a bad dude. In a 4/3 he's good.

Who did we sign?

We're under the cap and we have 90. No need to waive him unless he F'd up something big time or we're replacing him on the 90 with someone else.

Yeah, Broughton looks really good on paper and on the limited collegiate tape that's available of him, but I guess he just didn't fit into what the Saints were looking to do on defense or he f'ed up somehow like Danno suggested.

They might end up re-signing him later on... wouldn't be the first time that happened.

Not surprising to have some casulties when you switch defensive philosophy. He won't be the last.
