The Saints have announced four cuts, a portion of the NFL's first roster cutdown that is due on Tuesday.
All NFL teams must be at a roster size 75 before the final preseason game. Cuts on Sunday are QB Jason Fife, WR Aaron Hosack, CB Joe Porter, and LB Desmond Sims.
Fife, the team's sometime third string, sometime practice squad quarterback in 2006 lost a battle with rookie QB Tyler Palko. Should the Saints keep three quarterbacks, Palko will be the third, behind Drew Brees and Jamie Martin.
Porter and Sims, rookies, and Hosack, an NFL and NFL Europe journeyman, were also released.
