WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, West Virginia — The New Orleans Saints have released veteran defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley, citing a failed physical.

The Saints, in moves made Tuesday, also have placed receiver Marques Colston, safety Jairus Byrd and defensive lineman Glenn Foster on the physically unable to perform list. Those three players remain on the active roster and could return to the field at any time during the preseason.

The 6-foot-2, 306-pound Bunkley has spent three seasons in New Orleans, starting all but two of 38 games in which he played. He hasn't had a sack since 2012, but was often effective holding his position at the line of scrimmage and occupying blockers.

Kevin Williams and John Jenkins could fill the starting job vacated by Bunkley.

The Saints hold their first practice of training camp Thursday.
