re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
After the 2nd day of OTA's, the Saints made 6 moves.

Added
OC Ryan Groy
OT Marshall Newhouse
S Terrell Williams Jr.

Subtracted
OG Mike Herndon
WR Micah Wright
OT Derek Newton

I updated the roster & also our needs. The obvious need would be Gerald McCoy on a 1 year deal. A lot of people want another vet WR, so I added that as well.

I can't really see any other needs right now. I would say DE, but I'm not sure there are any guys available that we want.

This is probably the deepest roster we've ever had.

re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
The New Orleans Saints signed running back Matt Dayes to a one-year deal on Tuesday (May 28), according to league sources.

The Saints will likely announce a corresponding roster move later Tuesday. They have to cut a player to be at the roster limit of 90 players.

If I had to take a guess, I'd say we end up cutting a WR or O-Lineman. Lots of guys to choose from at those positions.

re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
We have OTA's today, Wednesday, & Thursday. This probably won't be the only roster move over the next 3 days, but I can't say for certain.

After these 3 days of OTA's, we still have 4 OTA's (June 3 to 6) to go. Plenty of potential roster shuffle to go.

re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
Update on our 2019 udfa's. 6 out of 19 have been cut so far. About what I expected at this point.

Swing & a miss with the CB's. Hopefully we can hit on 1 of the WR's, 1 of the DE's, & Ozigbo. Anything else would be a cherry on the top.

01 - RB Devine Ozigbo
02 - RB Darnell Holland - cut
03 - WR Lil'Jordan Humphrey
04 - WR Deonte Harris
05 - WR Emmanuel Butler
06 - TE Jake Powell - cut
07 - OT/OG Ethan Greenidge
08 - OG Mike Herndon - cut
09 - OT/OG Derrick Kelly
10 - LS Nick Moore
11 - DT Kenny Bigelow
12 - DT Shy Tuttle
13 - DE Carl Granderson
14 - DE Porter Gustin
15 - DE Corbin Kaufusi
16 - LB Chase Hansen
17 - LB Darrell Williams - cut
18 - CB Jordan Wyatt - cut
19 - CB Darius Williams - cut

re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
CB may just be a case of overcrowding at the position, but wanting to get a look at those two before making a decision.

Really no open spots at CB this year.

We still have 9 with CGJ being able to also play nickel.

re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
Very possible, b/c the top 7 CB's are likely to make the team imo. I don't see how any of these guys get cut unless Crawley sucks or if Sherels gets beat out by Deonte Harris at returner.

Marshon Lattimore - #1 outside
Eli Apple - #2 outside
Patrick Robinson - slot
PJ Williams - backup slot/backup outside
Ken Crawley - backup outside
Marcus Sherels - ST/returner
Justin Hardee - ST

Considering that PRob, PJ Williams, & CGJ can play the slot...the only way for another CB to make the team is to beat out Crawley on the outside imo.

RB Matt Dayes' contract

2019 cap # - 645 k

In other news, we have our last 4 OTA's this week. Today, Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday.

Don't be surprised if we have some roster shuffle in the next few days.

Saints signed CB Kayvon Webster & cut CB David Simmoms Jr.

Saints signed WR Chad Hansen & placed LB Chase Hansen on the NFI (non-football injury list).

We're at the 90 player roster limit after these moves.
