The New Orleans Saints quickly got to work on their roster.

With teams being permitted to begin releasing players on Monday, the Saints quickly got to work and parted ways with guard Jahri Evans, linebackers Ramon Humber and David Hawthorne and wide receiver Seantavius Jones.

New Orleans also signed cornerback Tony Carter.

Evans, who spent 10 seasons with the Saints, was a four-time All-Pro and made six Pro Bowls. He was selected in the fourth round out of the 2006 draft out of Bloomsburg.

Hawthorne hooked on with the Saints in 2012. He began to slide down the depth chart last season after New Orleans added Stephone Anthony. Hau’oli Kikaha and Dannell Ellerbe at linebacker.

Humber served as a core special teams player.

Jones hooked on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent last season and spent the bulk of the past two seasons on the practice squad.

More to come …
