The Saints announced Saturday they have released corner Stanley Jean-Baptiste, who was the team's second-round pick in 2014, per ESPN.com. Jean-Baptiste played in just four games last season, and didn't record any statistics. He spent most of the season as a healthy scratch.
Tackle Terron Armstead is the lone injured player on the inactive list released by the Saints for their Week 17 game against Tampa Bay. He is dealing with a neck issue that prevented him from practicing all week. The healthy scratches are wide receiversSeantavius Jones and Brandon Coleman, cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste, linebackers Jerry Franklin and Moise Fokou and safety Kenny Vaccaro. The inclusion of the embattled Vaccaro is not a good sign for the 2013 first-round pick.
The Saints have ruled the following players inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons: Seantavius Jones, Stanley Jean-Baptiste, Jamarca Sanford, Travaris Cadet, Moises Fokou, Lawrence Virgil and Terron Armstead.
The Saints declared defensive back Corey White, wideout Seantavius Jones, defensive back Stanley Jean-Baptiste, linebacker Moise Fokou, nose tackle Lawrence Virgil, offensive tackle Nick Becton and linebacker Ronald Powell inactive for Monday's game at Chicago. It's the first time all season White has been inactive. He's a healthy scratch despite starting nine games and racking up 52 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a sack.
Wide receiver Robert Meachem is the headliner among the seven healthy scratches on the inactive list posted by the Saints for their Sunday game against Carolina. The others are defensive backs Stanley Jean-Baptiste and Terrence Frederick, nose tackle Lawrence Virgil, tackle Nick Becton, linebacker Moise Fokou and guard Senio Kelemete.
