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.
