Saints cut veteran DE McCray after re-signing him in July

The New Orleans Saints cut defensive end Bobby McCray on Friday, according to a league source.

The move comes after the Saintsre-signed McCray to a one-year contract in July, just one month after abruptly releasing him.

McCray started all three of the defending champions' playoff games last season, making six tackles and a memorable block that flattened Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner after an interception.

McCray played in all 32 regular-season games since joining the Saints as an unrestricted free agent in 2008, registering 7.5 sacks. The six-year veteran has 29.5 career sacks with eight forced fumbles and one fumble recovery for the Saints and Jacksonville Jaguars.
