With the Saints trimming their roster to 53, some casualties to the roster occurred today. Among the cuts were QB Sean Canfield, WR Greg Camarillo, DE Braylon Broughton, LB Ezra Butler, and S Jerico Nelson, among others. The Saints will go with just Chase Daniel backing up Drew Brees under center. Of course the Saints will rely on Brees staying healthy so this shouldn’t really be a factor. Camarillo had a few successful seasons in Miami but has struggled to stay on a roster since then.
Nick Toon was also placed on Injured Reserve, ending his season. The fourth rounder was not expected to make a big impact this season, but should get a good look next year after sitting out 2012. The Saints have plenty of depth at WR with Colston, Henderson, Arrington, and Courtney Roby, so this is a devastating move.
