Sean Payton has run out of patience in Garrett Hartley.


The Saints waived Hartley on Tuesday, ending the kicker's six-year tenure in New Orleans. Hartley had been a disappointment this season, making just 22-of-30 field goal attempts. The final straw came Sunday, when Hartley missed two of three kicks in a 27-16 loss to the St. Louis Rams.

Fox Sports 1's Mike Garafolo reported the team will sign veteran kicker Shayne Graham to replace Hartley.

A frustrated Payton hinted a shake-up could be coming after a second loss in three weeks. The team also waived cornerback Chris Carr.

Hartley's job had been in danger for some time. In November, the Saints worked out five kickers, including Graham and Neil Rackers, before making the decision to stand pat.

Hartley will always have a special place in franchise history as the kicker for the team's lone Super Bowl champion. His 40-yard field goal ended an NFC Championship Game classic against the Minnesota Vikings in 2010.

If Graham is the guy, he'll go directly into the fire. The Saints will visit the Carolina Panthers on Sunday in a showdown that could decide the NFC South.

Re: Hartley Released

Sweeting? Carr isn't that good, but I don't think he was expected to be. That one smells like one of those Parcells cuts. It has to be Rackers or Graham.

Re: Hartley Released

I'm curious, what's the fan line?


Hartley should have been kept and allowed to kick until he made FGs.

or

In Sean Payton we trust.

Re: Hartley Released

Why was Carr cut?
is it it to get a pro-rated (2 game) vet kicker under the cap?

Re: Hartley Released

Aside from the SB run Hartley has given everyone the red ass. That miss vs. Atlanta a couple of seasons ago is when enough was enough.

Re: Hartley Released

Instant lifetime ban for whoever posts a "shouldn't have released Hartley" thread when the new kicker costs the Saints a game!
