The New Orleans Saints released veteran guard Jahri Evans on Monday, reports ESPN’s Field Yates.

Evans, 32, had been with the team since he entered the NFL in 2006. A four-time first team All-Pro and six-time Pro Bowl selection, Evans won a title with the Saints in Super Bowl XLIV.

Had the former fourth round selection remained with New Orleans, he would have been guaranteed $3 million on Wednesday. At $8.2 million, Evans had the third highest salary on the team heading into 2016.

On Monday, New Orleans also cut linebackers David Hawthorne and Ramon Humber, as well as wide receiver Seantavius Jones.
