Saints Nation: Saints release Brian Young

Brian Young was released today (thanks to theillinoise for the story). The Saints lost a good one, though the move does clear $3.2 million in cap space. Young was a good guy and a very positive locker room influence. He was go-go-go all the time on the field with a high motor and lots of hustle. Unfortunately for him and the Saints, he could never be healthy and the many injuries he endured ultimately did him in. It's safe to assume Brian Young's career has come to an end, but don't rule out a return from the big fella. Few players have more heart that this guy. So long #66 and thanks for your contribution to the Saints over the years. You will be missed.
