Saints parting ways with Luke McCown today

AP

The Saints brought back their old backup quarterback, so they don’t need the guy who’s been in that spot while he was gone.

According to Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Saints are releasing quarterback Luke McCown today.

The addition of Chase Daniel made McCown moot, since they also have 2015 third-rounder Garrett Grayson hanging around.

McCown has been with the Saints since 2013, but didn’t throw a pass last year. He’s also spent time with the Browns, Buccaneers, Jaguars, and Falcons.

    Good of you guys. That gives the Texans a way out of this.

    Well…Daniel is better than McCown so they did upgrade their backup QB position.

    They are going to need more upgrades at starting positions to compete for the division.

    He’ll be employed again before Kaep.

    Do not like this. They should be releasing Grayson. McCown has two good years left and is better than both Grayson and Daniel..

    Honest to God, Chase Daniel is not better than Luke. If you watch the tape you realize McCown is a bit better.

    I played HS ball with Grayson. I literally have no idea how he’s on an NFL roster.

    You may want to go back to the file room. He’s gone. Get over it.

    Bad move. He came within a great play by Josh Norman of beating the Panthers in Carolina. The only reason they brought back Daniels is because he’s shorter than Brees.

    Two good years left? With how often he actually plays, he has another 10 years left!
