The Saints have cut cornerback Chris Carr, agent Buddy Baker said on Twitter on Friday afternoon.

Carr, 30, appeared in five games for the Saints in 2013, notching eight tackles, defending two passes and recording one interception. In the Saints’ 35-17 win vs. Buffalo on Sunday, Carr played 20 snaps on defense and 13 snaps on special teams. Also, he broke up a pass intended for Bills tight end Scott Chandler in the endzone.

Before joining the Saints this June, Carr had stints with the Chargers (2012), Vikings (2012 offseason), Ravens (2009-2011), Titans (2008) and Raiders (2005-07).

Carr has recorded 221 tackles and seven interceptions since entering the NFL in 2005 with Oakland, which signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Boise State.

    Always felt bad for this guy because his wife is a dentist and it sounded like such a hassle for her to get re-certified in a new state every time he switched teams.

    Looks like they’re clearing a roster spot for Jonathan Vilma.

    I guess you really can’t criticize the saints coaching staff considering their record but this is two defensive players cut that I don’t have an explanation for (Carr and Wilson).

    We’ll take him down here in Houston. Our secondary sucks. But what do you expect when our guys include: #1 Kareem Jackson, who thinks interference and holding are the preferred methods of defending passes #2 the underperforming Jonathan Joseph who hasn’t been the same since his hamstring injury (last season or 2 seasons ago). #3 rookie DJ Swearinger who looks for the big hit, rather than proper tackling techniques ( by the way, that hit on Keller was legal but a cheap shot. ESPECIALLY in the pre season). #4 how can you leave out Ed Reed? He is one of the worst free agent busts in the history of the Texans. It’s so sad to watch a future HOF try to play when they should have retired. Reed is a shell of his former self. He had a chance to go out on top. Instead he looked for one more payday from the first available sucker. Good for you, Ed. Idiotic signing, Rick Smith. So yeah….we should sign this guy. Which means Rick Smith won’t even try to do it.

    How fortunate for a team to have so many guys playing well that they have to cut some good ones. Funny how having a head coach around all season actually does make players perform better. Shame on Goodell for claiming to have evidence and fabricating the Saints as a safety villain last season to distract attention away from himself.

    I think he is smart enough not to become a viking.
