Source confirms that #Saints have released C/G Matt Tennant. One of the day's surprises.

Surprising indeed.

And that means Eric Olsen makes #Saints roster as backup C/G, source confirms. Mild surprise but Olsen a very good young lineman.
Didn't see that one coming at all.

I was high on this kid... oh well. The opportunity was there, he just didn't seize it.

I'd heard he was a decent center, but he wasn't very good at guard. We needed a back-up that could play all 3 interior spots. Apparently DLP could and now Olsen can as well

Dang. They keep the players they like drafted or not. Can't argue with their results.

We always yo-yo our 3rd QB with #53 on the final and PS roster-- check last year's transactions- every week Tanner and Canfield were cut and signed

Re: Saints cut Matt Tennant

It was pretty apparent, when he didn't get the nod at center after Kreutz "retired" last season, that he hadn't really developed the way they had anticipated earlier when he was projected to be a future starting center.

So, while it's in a way sad to see him cut, I'm glad he is going to have the opportunity to fight for a starting job at another team.
