The Saints cut RB Jonathan Williams, per source. A big surprise.
Related players: Alvin Kamara, Mark Ingram, Boston Scott
With Mark Ingram suspended for four weeks, there had been growing speculation that Williams would take his place for the first month, until Williams was on the field in the 4th quarter of the Saints' fourth preseason game. It's clear now that Boston Scott, a sixth-round rookie out of nearby Louisiana Tech, impressed the coaches enough to keep him around. Scott took 12 carries for 68 yards and a touchdown and caught one of three targets for three yards in Thursday's preseason finale against the Rams. He may be worth a flier late in drafts, with the depth chart behind Kamara for Weeks 1-4 now clearer than ever.
