Saints waive rookie running back and former Zachary Bronco Boston Scott
METAIRIE - The New Orleans Saints have waived rookie running back Boston Scott according to multiple reports. The former Zachary Bronco initially made the 53-man roster, but was cut Wednesday to make room for re-signed veteran offensive lineman Michael Ola.
Scott was a 6th-round pick out of Louisiana Tech this offseason and had an impressive training camp/preseason. During the preseason, he had 25 carries for 121 yards, a 4.8-yard average, and scored a touchdown. He was also a major contributor on special teams in the kick return game.
The Saints now have just two running backs on the roster heading into week one. Alvin Kamara and recently-signed running back Mike Gillislee round out a shallow backfield after the recent cuts of Trey Edmunds, Jonathan Williams and now Boston Scott.
New Orleans has now waived four of their seven draft picks in 2018.
