The Saints are cutting third quarterback Ian Book, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports. The team could re-sign him to the practice squad with Jameis Winston and Andy Dalton the only quarterbacks left on the 53-player roster.

The Saints drafted Book in the fourth round in 2021, and he was forced to play one game last season because of injuries. He went only 12-of-20 for 135 yards and two interceptions in the loss.

Book did not fare much better this preseason.

In three games, he played 168 offensive snaps and went 42-of-65 for 315 yards with two touchdowns, two interceptions and two lost fumbles.

  1. Thank God this failed experiment is over! It was painful watching Ian Book last year and this preseason. There are better options for a third-string QB. And with Taysom Hill on the roster, the Saints don’t even need a third-stringer taking up roster space. He brought nothing special to the position. Perhaps he can catch on in the XFL or USFL next year to gain more experience and accuracy.
