Biggs: Saints waive CB McKenzie for QB Daniel

The New Orleans Saints cleared a roster spot to make room for rookie Chase Daniel, who will serve as the backup to Mark Brunell in the regular-season finale Sunday at Carolina.

Veteran cornerback Mike McKenzie has been waived. According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, that’s a good sign in that it likely indicates cornerback Jabari Greer is ready to return from a sports hernia injury that has kept him out the last seven weeks. The club could always bring McKenzie back following the game.

Daniel will serve as the No. 2 vs. the Panthers as the Saints, who have secured the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs, have elected to rest starting quarterback Drew Brees.
