The New Orleans Saints are likely parting ways with one of their Buckeyes as the team is releasing former Ohio State safety Kurt Coleman, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Coleman was not considered a starter, though he did start nine games, but was a key contributor for the Saints, finishing the season with 32 tackles.

The Saints are not ruling out his return next season, but are not willing to pay the $5.5 million he is owed this season, Garafolo reports.

This leaves the Saints with four former Buckeyes on their roster: Michael Thomas, Marshon Lattimore, Eli Apple and Vonn Bell.
