Saints To Waive Chris McCain

The Saints will cut defensive end Chris McCain, a source tells Josh Katzenstein of (Twitter link). New Orleans had just acquired McCain from the Dolphins days ago.Chris McCain (Vertical)

McCain, 24, is entering his third season in the NFL, but hasn’t contributed much during his first two years in the league. He’s appeared in 19 games, but he’s been more of a special teams player than a defensive stalwart. McCain picked up a sack and a forced fumble in 2015, but only played on 113 total snaps (43 on defense), and wasn’t ticketed for a larger role this year.

The Dolphins will not acquire a conditional draft pick from Miami given that McCain did not make the roster.
