The Saints are saying farewell to a couple of veteran defensive players as they make their way to the 53-player limit.
Chickillo signed with the team in May after being released by the Steelers in March. He was a 2015 sixth-round pick and had 97 tackles, 7.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 65 games for Pittsburgh.
Edwards signed a two-year deal with the team in March 2019, but failed to make a strong enough impression to see it out. Edwards had eight tackles and three sacks on 293 defensive snaps last season.
