¬†Since he’s been the head coach of the New Orleans Saints, Sean Payton has never kept less than 3 tight ends on the active roster. When the Saints announced their cuts on Saturday, fans were surprised to see only 2 TEs on the list. That lasted only 2 days, as the Saints will go into the season opener this Thursday with 3. New Orleans added 10 year veteran TE John Gilmore.

Gilmore, a Penn State alum,¬†was actually drafted by the Saints in the 6th round of the 2002 draft. He didn’t make the roster, but caught on with the Chicago Bears where he spent 6 seasons. The next 3 he made a home in the NFC South with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Steelers signed him in the offseason, but released him Saturday.

Gilmore has spent the majority of his career as a primary blocking TE, though he’s reeled in 5 touchdowns in 9 seasons.
