Ex-Saints CB Jabari Greer has announced his retirement.
A former undrafted free agent, Greer is hanging up his cleats after 10 years in the league. He made 86 career starts, including 10 for the Saints last season. His year ended with a torn ACL in November, however. Now 32, the injury was too much for Greer to come back from. Thu, Sep 11, 2014 02:53:00 PM

Free agent CB Jabari Greer is not actively searching for an NFL team and does not know if he will ever return to the field.

"I think right now today, I’m very content with where I am," Greer said. "But in the future, I’m sure that itch is gonna come, because it does for everybody. I guess it just depends if I decide to scratch it or not." Greer tore his ACL, PCL, and total posterior lateral compartment last November. It is the kind of injury that can be a career-ender for a 32-year-old corner. Greer was cut by the Saints in February.

NFL.com's Albert Breer's "feeling" is the Saints haven't ruled out bringing back free agent CB Jabari Greer.

Greer hasn't drawn any known interest since being released and is coming off November ACL surgery. He held his own in Rob Ryan's defense when healthy last year and could be insurance behind No. 2 corner Champ Bailey. Greer hasn't played a full season since 2011 and is questionable to be ready for the start of training camp.

Saints released CB Jabari Greer.

Greer joins DE Will Smith and SS Roman Harper as long-time Saints who were given their pink slips Wednesday. New Orleans cleared nearly $17 million in cap space with the three terminations. Greer could have a case to recoup some of his money because he's recovering from ACL surgery, but that will be handled at a later time. The 32-year-old has played a full 16-game season just once in the past six years. Greer will struggle to find multi-year offers in free agency.

Saints CB Jabari Greer is a candidate to restructure his contract this offseason.

Greer is coming off ACL surgery and set to make $4.4 million in 2014. With the Saints facing cap issues, he could be asked to take a pay cut or restructure his deal. Greer is currently signed through the 2015 season, but none of his remaining base salaries are guaranteed.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune wonders if Saints CB Jabari Greer has a future with the team.

Greer, 32 next month, tore his left ACL in November and is due a non-guaranteed $4.4 million in salary and bonuses next season. The Saints have salary-cap issues on the horizon and need to clear room to get Jimmy Graham under contract. Greer was playing pretty well before going down with the injury.

Saints placed RCB Jabari Greer on injured reserve with a torn left ACL, ending his season.

Greer's injury had the looks of a season-ender from the start. Greer was not playing at a particularly high level before going down, but had been holding his own for the Saints' much-improved defense. In the second season of a four-year, $21.1 million contract, Greer has no guaranteed money remaining beyond 2013. Going on 32, he's due $4.4 million between salary and bonuses in 2014. He may have to be amenable to a pay-cut to keep his roster spot. Second-year pro Corey White will take Greer's place opposite Keenan Lewis.

Coach Sean Payton said the knee injury CB Jabari Greer sustained Sunday is "serious."

Greer leaped to try to knock down a pass intended for Jon Baldwin and came down awkwardly on his left leg. He had to be carted off. Corey White, a 2012 fifth-round pick, will step in as the starter.

Saints CB Jabari Greer suffered a left knee injury in Sunday's game against the 49ers, and will not return.

Corey White is now in the game. Greer skied to defend a Colin Kaepernick pass in the first quarter, but landed awkwardly. He stayed down in a heap before being carted to the locker room. It had the looks of a season-ending injury. Greer's status will be updated no later than Monday afternoon.
Sun, Nov 17, 2013 04:56:00 PM

Saints CB Jabari Greer (back) is questionable for Week 2 against the Bucs.

The Saints are dealing with multiple injuries in their secondary, with Patrick Robinson (foot) and SS Roman Harper (knee) also listed as questionable. Greer practiced on a limited basis this week and should be available Sunday. Martez Wilson (probable, elbow) was held out of the season opener, but is set to resume his starting role over OLB Parys Haralson.
Sat, Sep 14, 2013 10:01:00 PM

Saints CB Jabari Greer (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Greer sustained the concussion in last week's win over the Cowboys and was not able to practice all week. Johnny Patrick filled in for Greer last week and will likely get the start in Sunday's finale with the Panthers.

Saints CB Jabari Greer sustained a concussion in last week's overtime win over the Cowboys.

Greer is unlikely to get cleared in time for Sunday's meaningless finale against the Panthers. Rebounding from offseason sports hernia surgery, he'll finish with 51 tackles and three interceptions in 14 games. Greer will return as the Saints' starting left corner in 2013.
Thu, Dec 27, 2012 10:35:00 AM

Interim Saints coach Aaron Kromer says LCB Jabari Greer's hip/groin injury "looks good."

It sounds like Greer will be ready to roll following the Saints' Week 6 bye. Greer is having a poor season, but it would be bad news for the Saints' embattled defense were he to miss any more time.
Mon, Oct 8, 2012 12:43:00 PM

Saints LCB Jabari Greer was forced from Sunday night's game against the Chargers with a groin/hip injury, and will not return.

Greer left the game early in the first half, and was formally ruled out in the third quarter. It's most unwelcome news after Greer missed Week 1 with a groin ailment. New Orleans' secondary was struggling both before and after Greer's departure. Corey White has taken Greer's spot in the base defense, with Johnny Patrick seeing snaps in the slot.
Sun, Oct 7, 2012 10:22:00 PM

Saints LCB Jabari Greer was scratched for Week 1 due to a groin injury.

Greer's absence was a bit of a surprise because he practiced all week, albeit in a limited manner. If the Saints felt they could give Greer a week of rest and still take down the Redskins, they were mistaken. Greer's status for Week 2 against the Panthers is uncertain. The Saints need their top corner back.
