Saints put WR Arrington on IR, release six others

The New Orleans Saints placed seventh-round draft pick WR Adrian Arrington (toe) on injured reserve Friday and released six other veterans as first steps in getting down to the NFL-mandated roster limit of 53 players by Saturday’s deadline.

Arrington, who has a toe injury, will miss the entire season. The Saints also terminated the contract of veteran S Lance Schulters and waived DE Jeremy Geathers, TE Ronnie Ghent, DE Marcus Pittman, S David Roach, G Isaiah Ross and T Brian Stamper.

 The team’s roster now stands at 67 players.  All NFL clubs must be at 53 players by 6 p.m. ET Saturday.
