INDIANAPOLIS — After two injury-riddled years in New Orleans, the New Orleans Saints are expected to release safety Marcus Maye, according to a Bleacher Report report. 

Maye has been in New Orleans since the start of the 2022 season, when he signed a three-year $22.5 million contract to help offset the loss of starting safety Marcus Williams. 

Maye’s time in New Orleans has been marred by both injury and suspension. The veteran safety has only appeared in half of the 34 possible games he could’ve suited up for with the Saints. 

In those games, Maye was largely unproductive. He signed with the Saints not long after tearing his Achilles tendon, and though he was ready to play in the 2022 season opener, he never made the impact New Orleans expected out of a player making nearly $10 million per season. 

In two years in New Orleans, Maye intercepted two passes, both this past season, while recording only four pass breakups. 

It is not yet clear whether the Saints will designate Maye a post-June 1 cut. If the Saints release Maye outright, he will count more than $8 million against the salary cap in dead money.
