Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Advocate Blog Network: New Orleans Saints release three to make room for rookies

The New Orleans Saints have released fullback Toben Opurum, running back Vick Ballard and defensive end Phillip Hunt in order to get down to the NFL’s 90-man roster limit.

New Orleans drafted five players and added 19 undrafted free agents, bringing the total roster numbers to 93 and forcing three cuts.

Opurum, a fourth-year player out of Kansas, spent most of the season on the practice squad in 2015, but he was active for two games and played on special teams.

Hunt, a pass rusher who made his name in the CFL, also had a brief cameo on the Saints’ 53-man roster, although he did not play in any games.

Ballard, a former Indianapolis Colt, was hoping for a shot to prove himself, but the Saints have a loaded backfield that got even more crowded when New Orleans drafted rookie Daniel Lasco in the seventh round.


Note: The Saints will have to release another player when DT David Onyemata is signed to be within the 90-man player limit.

Note: Toben Opurum was claimed off waivers by the Broncos; Best Wishes!

KP had all of the tools coming out of high school & I thought he would be great at USC. Hoping for the best at camp for him.

From last year's group, I really liked Kyle Prater, big guy, decent hands, he was dealing with nagging injury that slowed his progress; hoping he bounces back with a good offseason and training camp and makes this team...

R.J. Harris came in really raw; I'd be interested to see how he's progressed since last year's appearance...

Jordan Williams is also interesting, but I'd be more interested if he asks the equipment manager to put his entire name (Jordan Williams-Lambert) on the back of his jersey; as an UDRFA, I wouldn't push it...

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

It is unlikely that Mathews will earn a starting job if he makes the roster, but he offers the kind of versatility that coaches like to see from reserve players. It is that kind of versatility that got Zach Strief, Senio Kelemete, and Tim Lelito on the roster, and all of them could be starting in the fall. Mathews could be the next to follow in their footsteps.


I am going out on the limb early this year.

Avery Young maybe the injury role that pays of huge. Landon Turner maybe the hyped signing

But

Ryker Mathews Is the one I am watching out the corner of my eye. He may get a shot at OT but inside is were I think he will make his living. The knock about quickness off the snap "is lacking" is something I question and look at coaching as a possible issue. worth keeping an on.

I really like this pick up. blue collar, lunch, pail toting, pancake making line man, they make me swoon.

Between these three I feel much better about the possible future of the depth at OG.

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

Can we just trade Peat? We have a ton of guard options now and Peat isn't gonna beat out Strief. I still believe the team didn't really want Peat... They just got stuck.
