Roger Knight Waived

KNIGHT WAIVED: The Saints waived linebacker Roger Knight. Knight recently had returned to practice part-time after missing about two weeks with a knee injury. A four-year veteran, he played in 46 games the previous three seasons.

The Saints still must release 13 players before Tuesday, the league's mandatory first round of roster cuts. The roster numbers 86, but that includes reserve tackle Jon Stinchcomb, who is slated for the injured reserve list with a season-ending knee injury. The Saints have seven roster exemptions, meaning they must pare to 72.
I hadn't heard about this, but I can't say I was surprised to find out. There are plenty of LBs to cut this year.

Ya'll will have to excuse Halo. He's happy b/c he had a date last night. The School for the Blind just started classes again, so it's a happy time of year for him. LOL

No surprise. There'll be more LB's to join him, as well as a TE or two. Not to mention Joseph.

That guy could be pushed over by a breath of fresh air.

There are some tough decision to be made...but maybe not! LOLOLOLOL

How many TE will they keep? Boo may be boohooing real soon.

I hope Jimmy Williams makes it.

As a side note, I was watching the Fantasy draft on ESPN last night and it occurred to me, if AB was in the final year of his contract, I would have selected him in the first round. He always does his best when his contract is up! Too bad he doesn't in the subsequent years!

Roger Knight has been a solid special teams contributor for the past couple of seasons. Good luck to him... it's unfortunate he couldn't escape the injury bug.

I agree with Papz. Knight was a pretty solid special teamer when he was healthy. In a sense, this cut is good sign for our LB corps - it means we're strong enough to let a solid special teamer go (unless there is something I didn't know).

There's always something you don't know.

Knight wasn't spectacular in the game, but he was pretty good on ST. I hope the guy lands with another team.

papz 08-27-2005 12:51 AM

Holy crap... JKool where have you been? You honestly have keep this board civil with every single post. COME BACK! It's been a riot since you've been gone... well at least you kept me in check. :P
