METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Saints rookie linebacker Ronald Powell said he felt as if he was waiting for a call-back after a job interview.
With the final preseason game over, young players such as Powell, receiver Nick Toon, and safety Pierre Warren have little to do but wait and see if they'll still have a job with the Saints for Week 1 of the regular season.
Also awaiting word are place kickers Shayne Graham and Derek Dimke, who were competing closely throughout the preseason.
Rosters must be cut from 75 to 53 by Saturday afternoon, but there is hope for some of the younger players who wind up being waived. The NFL has agreed to expand practice squads from eight to 10 spots.
