Saints make roster moves

The New Orleans Saints just announced a couple of moves they made to get their roster down to the required 75 players.

No big surprises. The Saints waived quarterback Sean Canfield and wide receiver Andy Tanner. Canfield was a seventh-round draft pick this year and it remains a possibility he could return to the practice squad next week.

But Canfield never came close to getting into the race for the right to be Drew Brees’ backup. The Saints signed veteran Patrick Ramsey, and Chase Daniel -- who was with the team part of last year -- has emerged and been battling Ramsey for the No. 2 spot.

Tanner was an undrafted free agent out of Midwestern State.
