What is even happening

Just your typical first week jitters. You know, that thing where the Saints suddenly decide that half the people who made the team didn't actually make the team. 

Courtland Finnegan out. Sterling Moore in.

Kai Forbath out. Some guy named Wil Lutz in.

Zombie Jahri Evans maybe in?

We saw this last year when the team made a sudden burst of moves just prior to the first game.
METAIRIE, La. (AP) — The New Orleans Saints have cut veteran running back Tim Hightower and veteran offensive lineman Mike McGlynn while placing rookie linebacker Davis Tull on injured reserve.

New Orleans also has activated receiver Seantavius Jones, fullback Toben Opurum and defensive back Don Jones from its practice squad.
Not that any of that mattered much. Hightower came back and ended up playing a lot last year. The  Joneses and Opurum contributed nothing.  The Saints also added Obum Gwachum at the last second last year. He has yet to do much of anything although he is still with the team at least. So maybe this is all just routine now and nothing to worry about.  On the other hand, last year we thought it an indication that the team had pretty much decided to phone 2015 in.  And that turned out to be pretty accurate.
