Good morning missing seven out. That they've terminate the contracts of Will Smith Roman Harper and Jabari Greer plus they will not -- on Jonathan Vilma. This move is an effort to clear salary cap space. In part to -- Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham to a long term deal. WWL's Bobby Hebert says. Few more names could be added to that was the coats. Other players I think that they might have to address because that is salary cap number noble one up Procter Bunkley and then a couple of fan favorite so Lance Moore Pierre Thomas. -- the pelicans head into the all star break on a high note after snapping a two game losing skid with a 102 -- 98 victory over the Milwaukee book. Robert jazz it up before we go to along the right side bodies or Barak layup got Eric Jordan knocks it down. And the pelicans retake the lead.

Maybe a total of one hour of the Olympics arm cramped up because US hockey actually starts today so I get really into it now -- he'll watch the men's hockey. And it finally gets underway Sunday you know I just I don't know it hasn't captured my attention back up I watched -- -- style -- The Americans when everything we had been a bit of news going around here in sports and otherwise and with -- these things have been distracted yeah I'd four saints let go for veteran defensive players. Do you think that this is the right thing at the saints had to get rid of Jabari Greer Roman Harper Will Smith. And -- forgetting. -- Jonathan that was not he's on. Those four players says thank you very much have a nice day. Yet they'll be interested to see what actually happens in the long run with Jabari Greer -- won't rule out a possible return for him. Depending on how he rehab from his ACL injury may be taking a veteran minimum to come back. Because the sings the deathly still use him they're gonna be spent at the quarterback position. Bottom. You know Will Smith he got hurt last year as well and doesn't really fit in to rob -- scheme. And and then Roman Harper they've been played by the injuries all season long and the re emergence of Geneva car kind of really he took over that role. And we'll see what happens now I guess Malcolm Jenkins kinda has to be happy that he. Ends up. In the in the driver's seat because the -- kind of need to -- Malcolm Jenkins he's.
