Description: Former Pro Bowl kicker John Kasay was released by New Orleans on Friday.
Insight: The Saints kicked (no pun intended) the 42-year-old Kasay to the curb in favor of fifth-year kicker Garrett Hartley. Lots of kickers have been swapping places over the last few days so it's very possible Kasay will find a new home within the next couple of weeks.
