The roster is the roster for now, but could have some shifting within the next two weeks according to Sean Payton. Of course, we'll just have to see what exactly happens.

"One of the things you guys know is we're just beginning the first week," Payton said on Monday. 

"I think you'll see from us and from most of the other teams in the league, these next two weeks there's going to be a lot more transactions. The flexibility we have relative to practice squad now to active roster on gameday, It'll be difficult, I think for you guys to keep up with because the numbers can be somewhat challenging. Guys can come up, you'll have more inactives some weeks than others. To answer your question (on keeping two punters), a lot of it has to do with a vision relative to our overall roster and then some flexibility."

We're one day closer to Week 1's Saints game against the Buccaneers and the start of the NFL season.
