The New Orleans Saints made a roster move today which was a little odd. Tavaris Barnes who made the Saints roster as an undrafted free agent in 2015, was released today by the team.
Barnes is a Jacksonville, Florida native who attended Clemson University from 2010-2015 where he played DE/DT.
Barnes had 64 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, five sacks, 14 quarterback pressures, two pass breakups, one caused fumble and two recovered fumbles, including one for a touchdown, in 881 snaps over 47 games (four starts) in his career at Clemson.
The team also released former 5th round pick Vinnie Sunseri out of Alabama.
New Orleans Saints have waived Vinnie Sunseri and Tavaris Barnes, per the NFL’s transactions wire.
