NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The New Orleans Saints are planning to release defensive tackle Malcom Brown, according to Josina Anderson.

The move was expected as cutting Brown will save nearly $5 million by his release. Still, Brown has been a solid player for the Saints and was a key component of the team’s vaunted run defense. Brown is the eighth player the Saints have released this offseason.

With the move the Saints are projected to be around $12 million over the salary cap.
