The New Orleans Saints have officially cut their roster down to 80 players on Sunday by parting ways with nine players.
The full list of roster cuts for the Saints includes:
- CB Deatrick Nichols (Nick Underhill)
- RB Ricky Ortiz (Underhill)
- WR Krishawn Hogan (Amie Just)
- DL Gus Cumberlander (Underhill)
- WR Maurice Harris (Field Yates)
- WR Tommylee Lewis
- DB Chris Johnson
- G Adrian Magee

Nichols, 25, wound up signing on with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of South Florida back in 2018. He agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract and managed to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but was later waived in October.
Nichols was on and off of the Cardinals’ roster before agreeing to a deal with the Houston Roughnecks for the 2020 season.
During his one season with the Roughriders, Nichols recorded 24 tackles, one sack and three interceptions.
