The New Orleans Saints have informed safety Marcus Maye that they will release him at the start of the league year, according to a report.

Maye signed a three-year, $22.5 million contract with the Saints as a free agent in 2022. He missed 17 games over the last two seasons, playing in just as many.

If Maye is designated a post-June 1 cut, he will count $2.414 million in dead money and open $7.235 million in cap space.
