The team released veterans Steve Breaston and Patrick Crayton. Those two were brought in as insurance after Joe Morgan, who was ticketed for the third receiver spot, suffered a season-ending injury. But Toon and Stills have fared well in training camp and the preseason.
The Saints also released linebacker Chase Thomas, cornerbacks A.J. Davis and Dion Turner, guard Ricky Henry and receiver Jarred Fayson. As previously reported, the Saints also released quarterback Seneca Wallace.
As expected, defensive end Kenyon Coleman was placed on injured reserve.
