Today the New Orleans Saints released Jabari Greer, Will Smith, and Roman Harper. Two of the moves were not a surprise, in Will Smith and Roman Harper. The surprise move was definitely Jabari Greer. Greer has been a very solid starter since arriving in New Orleans. Greer is 32 and coming off an ACL injury, but obviously the Saints feel they can get a player to fill in for Greer.
The release of Will Smith cleared the most room, as it cleared $11.55 million in cap space, while Harper’s saves the Saints $2.18 million. This is an interesting couple cuts because all three can go to a team right now and start. They will become free agents and all will be able to sign anywhere.
Expect Jimmy Graham to be made a big offer soon. Obviously, the Saints are going all in to free cap to get Graham locked down.
