Curtis Lofton Released

According to @AdamSchefter
Saints officially released LB Curtis Lofton today.

Saints released ILB Curtis Lofton.

The Saints had been shopping Lofton for trade, but predictably found no takers. The move clears $4.25 million in space for the cap-strapped Saints. A durable compiler, Lofton has never missed a game while racking up tackles, but is coming off an extremely rough 2014. He was uneven all three of his years in New Orleans. Going on 29, Lofton has been a starter for his entire seven-year career, but may have to accept a reduced role in free agency.

Well the onus is really on the coaches now. NO MORE EXCUSES! Do it now or the heads better roll.

Re: Curtis Lofton Released

We need youth and athleticism at the position. Mr Lofton thank you but it's time to move on.

Yes. You are right. 4.25mil

I understand this move. We need to get younger and faster. Lofton was solid player for us but nothing more. His stats are misleading (tackles...)
