Saints Nation: Saints Say Goodbye to John Carney

The Saints said goodbye to John Carney for the second time today as the released the veteran kicker. This move was expected based on the fact that Garrett Hartley was serviceable, and the fact that they weren't just going keep around two kickers indefinitely on the 53 man roster with one inactive each week. Especially when we've been dealing with the injuries, the writing was on the wall for Carney. Let's face it, Hartley is the team's future at kicker. Still, it's sad to see Carney go because he has performed fairly well with the Saints over the years. Also, while he was shaky he did convert on a respectable 13 of 17 field goal attempts. The job is now Hartley's to keep.

The Saints also apparently waived newly signed cornerback Marcus McCauley in favor of available safety Herana-Daze Jones.
