Saints Cut RB Vick Ballard, DE Phillip Hunt & FB Toben Opurum

The New Orleans Saints announced Monday that they’ve released RB Vick Ballard, DE Phillip Hunt and FB Toben Opurum.

Ballard, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Colts back in 2012. Indianapolis wound up cutting him loose a few weeks into the 2015 season and he unfortunately never caught on with another team.

The Saints elected to sign him to a future/reserve contract back in January.

Ballard has missed all but one game over the past two years, so there is obviously some serious question about his future in the NFL.
