Former New Orleans Saints linebacker Nate Bussey looking for a third team

Former New Orleans Saints linebacker Nate Bussey was released last week before the team’s Friday preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.  The Jaguars promptly picked him up off waivers just days before the game.  Now Bussey is looking for another team to play for.

Bussey was one of the several cuts made by the Jaguars that were announced on Saturday in preparation to get the roster down to 75 players by 4:00 p.m. on Monday afternoon.

The Saints drafted him in 2011 as a seventh-round pick out of Illinois along with his teammate linebacker Martez Wilson whom the Saints drafted during the third round.

Unlike Wilson, Bussey could just never crack the final roster and was placed on the practice squad for the Saints until he was activated during the final two playoff games.
