James Hurst May Be Cut Loose This Offseason

The Athletic's Larry Holder lists New Orleans Saints offensive guard/tackle James Hurst as a potential salary cap casualty this offseason. At the start of the offseason, the Saints sat around $83 million in the red, according to Over the Cap. Hurst and linebacker Demario Davis are the only two players who would give the Saints 2024 salary cap relief of more than $3 million each on their entire roster. Releasing Hurst would free up around $4.2 million, so he's one of the most obvious salary cap casualties for the team. The 32-year-old veteran missed two games in 2023 due to an ankle injury but was New Orleans' starting left tackle when healthy. The 10-year NFL veteran has been with the Saints for the last four seasons after spending the first six years of his career with the Baltimore Ravens.

James Hurst Questionable To Return Sunday

New Orleans Saints left guard James Hurst (ankle) is questionable to return versus the Houston Texans in Week 6. He had played the bulk of New Orleans' offense snaps this season but was expected to play a reserve role with Andrus Peat (groin) active Sunday. Peat should continue to handle the bulk of left guard snaps with Hurst sidelined.
