METAIRIE, La. – The New Orleans Saints will likely tweak the roster again over the next few days. They’re especially thin at receiver and tight end.
We’re still waiting to see if the Saints use their short-term injured reserve designation on cornerback Keenan Lewis, which would force him to miss at least eight games. They could also look to add players released by other teams.
Here’s the 53-man roster as it stands today. I’ll break it down player-by-player on Monday.
