NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Saints have cut three-time Pro Bowl right guard Larry Warford.

Warford’s three-year run as a Saints starter was cast into doubt by the club’s decision to select interior lineman Cesar Ruiz in the first round of the recent NFL draft only one year after using a second-round pick on interior lineman Erik McCoy.

Saints general manager Mickey Loomis on Friday announced the decision to cut Warford.

The seven-year veteran out of Kentucky started all 44 games in which he played for New Orleans since signing a four-year contract worth $34 million in 2017.
