The Saints are reportedly looking to part ways with Curtis Lofton.

New Orleans is apparently “shopping” last year’s leading tackler, linebacker Curtis Lofton, according to NFL Network.

It’s a surprising report considering that Lofton was one of the better performers on defense, but the team needs to clear nearly $22 million in salary by Friday’s deadline and Lofton is due to count $9.25 million against the cap in 2015.
