Saints will not tender DT Johnson
 
@TomPelissero: Late night news nugget: #Saints aren't tendering DT Tom Johnson as RFA. Intriguing rotational player in league that always needs big bodies.

He is effective in the rotation. I would think he'll have no problem finding a new team. If Foster/Walker stay healthy we are set on d-line guys.

I would love to see another DT taken with a high draft pick this season= set for years!!

I like Tom but I guess we can't keep everybody.

Good luck to him but its a opening to continue the younger cheaper trend

He'll find a home in a 4-3 rotation somewhere

I would have kept him. Very solid player.

Cost for RFA tender on Johnson would've been $1.4 million. Glenn Foster and Tyrunn Walker will make about $1.1 million next year combined and those guys were earning playing time over Johnson last season. I'd say this is a no-brainer by the FO. I like Johnson but you have to cut costs somewhere.
