The upcoming preseason game for the New Orleans Saints against the Oakland Raiders will be the last time we see some of the main starters for the team until the regular season. For about 15 players, it will be the end of their time on the roster.
Yes, it’s that time already. NFL rosters will get a little thin on August 30 when the number of players will be reduced from 90 to 75. The Saints will surely use the Raiders game to make the cuts by plugging in a few players that are on the fringe.
I’ve been looking at the roster and injury reports for the past week to see where the Saints might possibly make a few cuts. I’ve listed not only the players but as to why I think they’ll be released.
LB Ezra Butler ( has been on the injured/not practicing list for most of training camp)
LB Ramon Humber (spent alot of time in camp injured with very few reps)
LB Clint Ingram (hamstring issues; was injured last year; very few practices; injury prone)
LB Dwight Roberson (made some impact in camp but not enough to stand out)
