Easton, 28, originally signed on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Harvard back in 2015. He was later traded to the 49ers in return for a seventh-round pick.
From there, San Francisco elected to trade Easton to the Vikings for LB Gerald Hodges a few months later. Unfortunately, Easton missed the 2018 season after undergoing surgery to correct a herniated disc in his neck.
The Saints signed Easton to a four-year deal worth $22.5 million back in 2019.
Releasing Easton frees up $5.87 million of cap space for the Saints.
In 2020, Easton has appeared in 12 games for the Saints and started nine games for them.
