Notes on two ex-Saints

  • QB Chase Daniel has been waived and is expected to re-join the Saints on the practice squad. The Saints made room for activated kicker Garrett Hartley by waiving Daniel. They cut OT Renardo Foster from the practice squad.

    Hartley has been activated off the suspended list after completing his four-game suspension for testing positive for a banned substance.

  • If the Jets' first fake punt last night on Monday Night football was oddly familiar to Saints fans, its because the punter on the play was former Saint Steve Weatherford. Now with the Jets, Weatherford gained 26 yards on a punter keeper around the right side.

    Unintentionally, Weatherford pulled the same trick for the Saints on January 14, 2007, when his punt attempt deep in Saints territory was nearly blocked. Instead of kicking into the blocker, Weatherford pulled the ball down and ran 15 yards for a first down, a huge swing of events with only 25 seconds left in the first half, the Saints down 14-13.

    Check out Miami Weatherford's run 10 seconds into this video.
