Loomis also says the club does not intend to re-sign linebacker Jonathan Vilma, who has been hampered by recurring knee injuries the past few seasons.
Analysis: Loomis says parting ways with four longtime Saints who played key roles in the club's only Super Bowl title was difficult. However, he says the moves were needed to help New Orleans bring its player payroll below the NFL's salary cap. Wednesday's moves will save nearly $17 million in 2014.

Analysis: Payton had hinted Monday that the injury was serious, but waited until Tuesday to disclose the ACL tear and report that Greer is being placed on injured reserve.

Analysis: Greer landed awkwardly after leaping to break up a third-down pass intended for Jon Baldwin. As Greer came down, he twisted his ankle and his knee appeared to buckle. The veteran was taken to the locker room on a cart. He waved to the crowd while receiving an enthusiastic ovation. Coming into the game, Greer, a 10-year veteran, had been credited with 30 tackles, including a tackle for a loss, along with an interception and 10 passes defended.
