The Saints waived offensive lineman Will Clapp on Thursday. It marks the third time this season the Saints have cut him.

Clapp, signed to the active roster most recently Oct. 3, has played two games. He has seen action on 11 special teams plays but none on offense.

He played 17 games with four starts in 2018-19 for the Saints.

The Saints signed receiver Tommylee Lewis to the practice squad.

Lewis has not played since 2018 when he was with the Saints. He played three seasons for New Orleans, appearing in 34 games with four starts.

His most famous play, of course, came in the NFC Championship Game two years ago when Nickell Robey-Coleman clearly interfered with Lewis without drawing a penalty.

  1. Seems like o-line is kinda thin to be cutting Clapp. I get with Harris out need a return man and Kamera is too valuable to risk. But what about Taysom, or was he muff prone with kicks? Just seems like Clapp has done well whenever called upon. Although emotion has no place in this kind of decision, sure appreciate job Clapp has done and being local native. This move also indicates Deonte Harris may be out for an extended period. Sure hope that isn’t the case.

  2. It’s ancient history now! Tommy Lee Lewis should have sold that call to the officials and stayed on the ground asking for the flag. The proverbial late flag may have been thrown. It’s the least he could have done for his team, and after being drilled, before the bowl even arrived. I guess it was his inexperience or maybe he thought it was a no brained, the official was going to throw the flag.

    It was just a trip to the Super Bowl on the line for the Saints!

  3. I know it was the refs fault but I wish TommyLee would just stay on another team, any time his name is called theres a chance Ill have to see that clip of him getting Midway NFL Blitz’d flying thru the air. The ultimate hilite for saints haters

  4. I really wish everyone would stop mentioning that play every time one of those two players is brought up, because the crying is getting old.

    no one is “Crying”, just pointing out the worst non-call in NFL history…big difference

    You think it was the “worst call in NFL history” because it happened to your team. You clearly haven’t been watching the game all that long if you truly believe that.
    It happened two years ago, it wasn’t changed then, and it will never be changed. Bringing it up now serves no purpose whatsoever, and is therefore the very definition of crying.
