The Saints announced on Thursday that two players have been released today, and that one will be cut tomorrow.
Out as of right now are linebacker Mark Simoneau and offensive lineman Jamar Nesbit.
Out as of Friday will be defensive end Charles Grant.
Per NFLPA records, the moves clear out more than $6 million in 2010 base salary, including $4 million that Grant alone would have earned.
Grant was a first-round pick in 2002. He has been subject to a four-game suspension for StarCaps, which the league has delayed enforcing pending the outcome of the litigation filed by Vikings defensive tackles Pat and Kevin Williams.
