Metairie, La. - The New Orleans Saints have made a couple of roster moves of interest. One was to re-sign defensive end Jay Richardson to help bolster the defensive line, according to Larry Holder of NOLA.com.
To make room for Richardson, the Saints released receiver Andy Tanner.
Interesting, in that Tanner, a hard scrabble guy who's become a 'little engine that could' story, has now been cut 17 times by the Saints without ever having played in a regular season game.
This had been the first time he's ever made the pro roster, and chances are he'll be called back again.
However the emergence or rookie Kenny Stills and Nick Toon switching off in the third receiver role, and playing at a high level, deals Tanner out of the game.
