METAIRIE, La. (AP) — A person familiar with the situation says the New Orleans Saints have cut reserve quarterback Seneca Wallace, Steve Breaston and Patrick Crayton. Also being waved were cornerback A.J. Davis, receiver Jarred Fayson, guard Ricky Henry, linebacker Chase Thomas and cornerback Dion Turner

Wallace, whose release was first reported by ESPN, has been competing with Luke McCown to back up Drew Brees. Wallace struggled in his first preseason appearance last Friday against Oakland, completing only three of six passes for 32 yards in his five series leading the offense. He also was intercepted on a tipped pass and fumbled into the end zone, where Oakland recovered for a touchdown.

Wallace also was limited early in camp because of a groin pull and did not play in the Saints' preseason opener.
