Saints released DT Remi Ayodele.
Ayodele has started 42 games for the Saints and Vikings over the last three seasons. But at age 29 he no longer generates a push up front. He was also linked to the bounty scandal. The Saints also waived TE Jake Byrne, WR Marques Clark, WR Kevin Hardy, WR Derek Moye, OL Hutch Eckerson, OL Paul Fenaroli, OL Brian Folkerts, DE Donavan Robinson, DT Swanson Miller, LB Aaron Tevis, CB Kamaal McIlwain, CB Cord Parks and S Johnny Thomas.

Saints agreed to terms with DT Remi Ayodele, formerly of the Vikings.

The 29-year-old Ayodele was the Saints' starting nose tackle in 2009 and 2010 before washing out as a free agent bust in Minnesota last season. He could be a big contributor right away on running downs in New Orleans. Ayodele knows the system, plays a need position, and is coming nice and cheap.

Vikings released DT Remi Ayodele.

The move doesn't clear any cap space, but does take the Vikings off the hook for Ayodele's $2.2 million base salary. Ayodele struggled mightily in Minnesota's scheme last season, failing to attract double teams on the nose and generating no pass rush. His possible involvement in the Saints' bounty scandal didn't help Ayodele's chances of keeping a roster spot, either.
Wed, Mar 21, 2012 03:59:00 PM

The Vikings' signing of DTs Fred Evans and Letroy Guion could lead to the release of Remi Ayodele.

Guion's signing clouded Ayodele's future while Evans' re-signing may have sealed it. Ayodele was a bust during his first year in Minnesota last season, proving highly ordinary as a run stuffer.

Vikings DT Remi Ayodele was demoted out of the starting lineup Monday.

Ayodele had started eight games this season, but had just three tackles during that span. On Monday, rookie Christian Ballard got the nod. Ayodele signed a three-year, $9 million contract with the Vikings back in July.
Tue, Nov 15, 2011 09:18:00 AM

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier has tabbed newly acquired Remi Ayodele as the team's new starting nose tackle.

Barring an injury to Ayodele or another down lineman in camp, it appears they won't be bringing back free agent NT Pat Williams. Ayodele is strictly a two-down run stopper and not a particularly good one at that. We'd expect the Vikings to be easier to run on this season with Williams and LB Ben Leber on the outs.

Vikings agreed to terms with DT Remi Ayodele, formerly of the Saints, on a three-year, $9 million contract.

The Saints started Ayodele at nose tackle next to Sedrick Ellis, but he was one of the worst players on their defense. For the Vikings' sake, we hope this isn't their answer to potentially losing both Pat Williams and Jimmy Kennedy. Ayodele, 28, would be a little used early-down substitute on a good defense.
Thu, Jul 28, 2011 11:59:00 AM

Saints re-signed restricted free agent NT Remi Ayodele to a one-year, $1.101 million contract.

Ayodele, 27, took over as New Orleans' starting nose tackle early last season, replacing Kendrick Clancy. He finished with 30 tackles and 1.5 sacks. The Saints' run defense struggled, and the team could certainly afford an upgrade. They'll likely look to the draft for run-stopping assistance.
Tue, Apr 13, 2010 01:28:00 PM

Remi Ayodele has taken over as the Saints' starting nose tackle, replacing Kendrick Clancy.

Clancy has been injured, while New Orleans' run defense has played exceedingly well with Ayodele and "three technique" Sedrick Ellis manning the interior. Ayodele is helping himself with restricted free agency looming.
Wed, Oct 21, 2009 02:51:00 PM

Saints promoted DT Remi Ayodele from their practice squad.

Akin's brother has been on and off the roster all season. He'll add depth behind Antwan Lake, Sedrick Ellis, Hollis Thomas with Kendrick Clancy (hamstring) injured.
Sun, Dec 21, 2008 01:02:00 PM

Saints released DT Remi Ayodele.

He was treading water as the team's No. 6 defensive tackle.
Wed, Nov 12, 2008 01:31:00 PM

Cowboys released NT Remi Ayodele.

Ayodele had been signed two months ago after an injury to Jason Ferguson, but had been inactive since the team activated Tank Johnson.
Tue, Dec 11, 2007 06:08:00 PM

Cowboys signed NT Remi Ayodele.

Ayodele was with the Cowboys until final cuts in training camp. He will provide depth after the loss of Jason Ferguson to a torn bicep.
Tue, Sep 11, 2007 05:31:00 PM

Falcons waived DT Remi Ayodele.

Akin's brother was on the roster for five days.
Fri, Sep 7, 2007 05:14:00 PM
