The Saints settled their kicking competition, by cutting the single-season record holder in points scored.

According to Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Saints cut John Kasay, giving the job back to Garrett Hartley.

Kasay filled in for an injured Hartley and had a banner year, with a franchise-record 147 points.

But Hartley recovered well from last year’s hip injury, leading the Saints to part ways with the 42-year-old Kasay.

Kasay’s old team, the Panthers, might be considered a likely landing spot, but they seem set on keeping young Justin Medlock.
