Will Herring’s future with the Saints was in question during the offseason, as he was one of the players to be let go, right before he was due $1.6M. He was signed back with the team just nine days later. He would primarily play on special teams, but when he was put on the field, he rated out -4.2 on P 41 snaps via Pro Football Focus.

2014 Outlook: Herring will turn 31 in August, and as Sean Payton stated in his presser yesterday, he could easily be one of the ‘familiar’ faces that will not be back on the team this season. It’s hard to think that Herring will be able to beat out the upcoming younger talent the Saints have in waiting.
