New Orleans Saints release veteran Jahri Evans 0. .

The New Orleans Saints kicked off their 2016 offseason with a splash, by parting ways with 32-year-old guard Jahri Evans. New Orleans was expected to make a few moves this offseason to help out their cap situation, and it seems they’re ready to get to work.

Via Field Yates of ESPN:

As Sam Robinson of Pro Football Rumors reported, the move will result in the Saints getting hit with $5.1 million in dead money, but will save them $3.1 million in 2016 cap space.
