12:23 PM ET 02.20 | The New Orleans Saints cut tight end David Thomas and cornerback Johnny Patrick on Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. The Saints made the cuts as the team tries to get under the 2013 salary cap. The moves will save the Saints about $2 million, according to Saints Nation Blog. Thomas, 29, spent the last four seasons with the Saints after being acquired in a trade from the New England Patriots. Thomas played in 48 games for the Saints (started 25) and caught 81 passes for 677 yards and seven touchdowns.

hmmm. I wonder if New England will stockpile TEs like they did last offseason?

Other teams should know better that once a player is released by the Patriots, the player is basically is useless.

Oh well, I guess it's back to Wendy's for him.

I like reading the bio on Thomas... and not a peep on the other guy.

Hell - I'm too lazy to scroll up and catch his name.

I wasn't too lazy to scroll up and look, but now I'm too apathetic to remember what I just saw. It's going to be a long off-season, isn't it?

Sad to see Thomas go, maybe they bring him back at the start of camp. Johnny Patrick was bad, a waste of a perfectly good draft pick.
