New Orleans Saints: Vince Young, Drew Brees, Cam Newton, Donte Stallworth

NFL teams had a limit of 90 players they will invite to training camp and the Saints have only 47 players under contract as of Tuesday. Teams cannot not officially cut players until Thursday afternoon even though some teams chose to tell players immediately that they were no longer in their plans. The Saints did not follow suit, remaining silent on that matter.

 The Saints will have a rookie pool of $4,789, 294 to spend on their draft picks. That's the amount the NFL has designated for the Saints under the new CBA's new rookie wage scale.

Drew Brees said the following on WWL radio on Tuesday:

"It's been a long time coming…Obviously this was a wild offseason for all of us. This was uncharted territory, something none of us was used to. ... And there was just a lot of uncertainty as to how long this would last.”

"It came down to the wire, but we got a deal done that we're all very happy with. We feel like it was a fair deal for both sides."

LSU wide receiver Terrence Toliver has signed a rookie free agent contract with the Texans and Tigers kicker has signed as a free agent rookie with the Tampa Bucs. Tulane offensive tackle Pete Henrickson has signed with the Texans...
