I love Jabari Greer, he is the only guy out of this bunch I really hate to see go. I have nothing against Harper and Vilma, they contributed a lot but it was time.

Will Smith, I can't stand. Guy never lived up to his billing. He was fat, slow and took a lot of stupid penalties. He wasn't even that good in the Super Bowl year, he had a lot of sacks but was terribly inconsistent.

Jack, you're being hard on Smith.

The guy was above average and healthy throughout his career. Charles Grant, however, was a waste of space.

Surprised we cut Greer. Now we really need a CB. Not surprised by the others though.

We probably would have done that in some type of restructure instead of an outright release.

I think we're moving on.

Yep, but I imagine they informed him that he's no longer in their plans, so its kinda sorta a cut.

I think Vilma and Smith were overdue, I do thank them for the good years, they were solid. Harper, I like him and if he can get resigned to a lower pay I wouldn't mind resigning him but if he leaves who will we talk about as much on this board. Greer, I would like him back at a lower rate but alot depends on how he heals if no one is brought back thanks to them also.

Statement from Will Smith.


Statement from Will Smith on his release from the New Orleans Saints today:

"While it was always my dream to retire as a member of the New Orleans Saints, I recognize that the NFL remains a business first. I will always be grateful to Mr. Benson, Mr. Loomis, and Coach Payton for the opportunity they gave me to play the sport I love in front of football’s greatest fans, amongst some of my best friends. We accomplished great things during my time with the Saints, including winning the first Super Bowl in franchise history, and I am proud of my contributions during the decade I wore black and gold. My wife Racquel and I will continue our commitment to improving lives for New Orleans' youth no matter where my next stop in professional football takes me. I'm in good spirits, thankful and focused on training. My family and I welcome the next chapter in our NFL life. Who Dat!"

I was surprised to see Greer cut. I have respect for all of those guys and love that they were a factor in us getting our first Super Bowl win. They will forever be Saints to me and I hope they continue to have success in whatever they do next. Who Dat!
