The Saints released six-time Pro Bowl guard Jahri Evans Monday, along with three others. The Saints also cut wide receiver Seantavius Jones, linebacker David Hawthorne and linebacker Ramon Humber.
Evans was due $3 million if he was still on the roster on Wednesday. He was set to make $4.9 million in 2016. Evans, 32, has been with the Saints since 2006 and started all 153 games he played. Many thought he would be back in 2016 after he took a pay cut in 2014, but that did not happen.
Evans started 11 games last year for the Saints.
