The Saints cut 22 players from their active roster on Friday, including veteran PK John Kasay. That means that Garrett Hartley will handle the kicking duties for New Orleans.
Another noted veteran released was WR Greg Camarillo.
The team placed four players on injured reserve, including CB Marquis Johnson and fourth-round rookie WR Nick Toon.
TE Michael Higgins, C Matt Tennant, QB Sean Canfield, S Jerico Nelson and LB Lawrence Wilson were waived.
