NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Saints have cut linebacker Nigel Bradham and placed defensive back Johnson Bademosi on injured reserve. Bradham is an eight-year NFL veteran who had spent his first four seasons with Buffalo and the previous four with Philadelphia. Saints coach Sean Payton says his staff decided to release Bradham so they could get a better look at some younger linebackers. Bademosi also is an eight-year veteran who spent part of last season with Miami and finished it with New Orleans. The Saints have not discussed specifics about his injury.
