It was a sad bit of news for defensive end Greg Romeus and an end to a promising season when the New Orleans Saints announced they had waived/injured him today.  But this might not be the end.

Romeus and his cult following of fans were all devastated when he tore is ACL and MCL in his left knee during the end of OTA’s, ending his comeback from last season.

He was a seventh round pick in 2011 for the Saints and had fallen that far because of a right knee injury suffered during his last season of college in Pittsburgh.

The Saints took a chance on Romeus and let him rehab his knee all of last season so he could be ready to play for this upcoming season.

Interim head coach Joe Vitt and defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo raved about the progress of  Romeus and seemed eager for him to be in the rotation for the defensive line.

While it may seem cold that the Saints released Romeus after pledging to help him return to football, he could find his way back.
