Re: OT: New Orleans Defense takes another blow
The Saints cut Romeus, with the expectation that he will be put on IR if he clears waivers:

PFT gets a few digs at the Pats and the Jake Ballard situation. But Romeus not only tore his ACL and MCL, he had knee (ACL) and back injuries his senior year at Pitt.
Tough break for Romeus. He was Chandler Jones before Chandler Jones - a 6'5" 265# prospect from a Big East school 35" arms would would likely have been a 1st/2nd round prospect in 2010 if he had declared as a junior. He was the Big East DPOY in 2009. He had a lot of similarities to Jones in his game - great length, lack of an elite first step but great strength and hand technique, not a true 3-4 OLB but able to play standing up at times.
I was really high on Romeus in 2010, and when he came out in 2011 I was hoping the Pats would pick him up day 3. But after 2 ACLs and a back history, it seems like he has a big hill to climb to resurrect his career.
