The 2019 preseason is in the books and New Orleans Saints coaches will turn their attention to trimming the teams roster from 90 to 53 by Saturday’s deadline.
The Saints, currently, have solid depth at multiple positions meaning there will be some players that will miss the cut that could contribute.
It’s impossible to predict how the initial 53-man roster will look as the Saints could add players released from other teams.
But here’s a look at the “Cajun Cannon” Bobby Hebert’s final 53-man roster projection following the preseason finale.
Not much has changed from his initial projection despite a couple strong performances in the preseason finale.
Quarterback (3): Drew Brees, Teddy Bridgewater, and Taysom Hill
Running Back (4): Latavius Murray, Alvin Kamara, Dwayne Washington, and Zach Line
Wide Receiver (6): Mike Thomas, Ted Ginn Jr, Tre’Quan Smith, Emmanuel Butler, Keith Kirkwood, Deonte Harris
Tight End (3): Jarred Cook, Josh Hill, Dan Arnold
Offensive line (9): Terron Armstead, Andrus Peat, Erik McCoy, Larry Warford, Ryan Ramczyk, Nick Easton, Cameron Tom, Michael Ola, Will Clapp
