Saints release McCray; waive Sharpe

For Immediate Release: Monday, June 21, 2010

New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced Monday that the club has released defensive end Bobby McCray and waived cornerback Glenn Sharpe.

McCray, a six-year veteran defensive lineman, played two seasons with the Saints after signing as an unrestricted free agent in March 2008, starting eight of 32 games and made 59 tackles with 7½ sacks, three pass defenses and a forced fumble. The 28-year-old also started all three of the Saints postseason games last season, making nine tackles. The University of Florida product played the first four seasons of his NFL career with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

He never really lived up to his role as a "pass-rushing specialist" and has struggled with chronic back issues. I guess they cut bait rather than pay him an upcoming 1.25m bonus, I believe.

I didn't really believe there was going to be a true competition for Grant's spot after the Saints signed Alex Brown.

They must have been pretty bad not to stick with the 25th ranked defense?

Yep.....it's true.
