It's that time of year again when teams have to make some tough decisions as they trim their rosters from 80 to 53.

On Sunday, the Saints started on those cuts, releasing six players as the final week of the preseason came to an end.

The player in question is the defensive back Brian Allen

and Kwenton Meeks, defensive linemen tackle Josh Black, Derrick Kelly and Khaliq Washington

And Abram Smith is running back.

Allen, Meeks and Kelly are the most likely candidates to be brought back to the team's practice squad,

Because all three have regular season NFL experience.

They take the six roster cut saints to 74 players,

ie 21 still has to go before the 4 pm deadline on Tuesday.

Kevin White was also let go by New Orleans over the weekend.

He and the team reached an injury settlement.
