Poor RG3. He very well may be the best quarterback in the NFL, but if he doesn't ever get any time to prove it no one other than him will ever know it.

Saints letting Tyrunn Walker test market

This below makes sense because the minimum tender is around $1.5 million and there’s no way the Saints can afford to pay a reserve lineman that much. Losing Walker would be a bummer, though.
