New Orleans Saints have cut tight end Michael Egnew

Steelers cut Michael Egnew to make room for Brandon Boykin

Former Dolphins TE Michael Egnew has been waived by the Saints

Michael Egnew was a former third round pick, but the kid cannot make a roster.  Egnew was signed recently by the New Orleans Saints, but did not make a great impression. According to Kristian Garic the Saints are placing TE Michael Egnew on waivers Monday.

New Orleans signed Egnew to a contract a week ago, but it appears as though he was contingency option to veteran TE Alex Smith, who was re-signed a few days ago.

Egnew has all the intangibles, but he cannot make a roster. This is not a great sign for the former Missouri tight end.
