The New Orleans Saints made a variety of moves yesterday to get down to the 75 roster minimum, but speculation is running wild as to how the team will get to the 53-man limit on Saturday.
‘Here are a few things to know for today.
Per ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas:
Bradley Handwerger projects the 53-man roster and doesn’t have linebacker Jonathan Vilma on it. Instead, Handwerger speculates that Vilma will end up on injured reserve. Vilma is coming off knee surgery, so that remains a possibility. Even if Vilma can get healthy, I’m not sure his role will be all that significant.
Per NOLA.com’s Mike Triplett:
The Saints actually added to their roster on Tuesday, claiming former Buffalo Bills cornerback Jumal Rolle off of waivers. I don’t know enough about Rolle yet to predict whether he can beat out fellow contenders like young corners Corey White and Rod Sweeting and veteran Chris Carr. But it was a strong reminder for everyone on the Saints’ roster bubble that they’re not only competing with each other – but with players from all around the league.
