Saints: 2 reasons to cut Larry Warford before season — Updated: They actually did it
The New Orleans Saints have too much talent on the offensive line and not enough money to spend; Larry Warford needs to go.
New Orleans Saints offensive lineman Larry Warford has been a tremendous part of the team and a big reason that the line has been consistently ranked one of the best in the NFL. However, everyone moves on at some point.
With the New Orleans Saints reaching out and drafting a guard with the No. 24 pick in the draft, it inevitably meant the beginning of the end for someone. Unfortunately, that person is going to be Larry Warford.
Now, obviously, the best-case scenario would be to try and trade Warford and get something back from the Pro Bowl guard while having someone else take his salary, but if that won’t work, the Saints are going to have to cut him.
But, as a matter of fact, while the next two points are great reasons why they should cut Warford, since this has been writing, they have cut him, per the Saints press release.
I know it seems harsh to cut a player who meant so much to the city, but again, the time has come for new faces to take over. Here are two reasons that cutting Warford before the start of the season makes sense for the New Orleans Saints.
