Issue with deck post alignment

So I had two concrete footings and posts poured in the Fall. I'm now thinking of extending the deck and putting in another post as a result. When I check the squareness/alignment of my new plan I see that one post is off by 5". How this happened, I have no clue. So I'm wondering what my options are at this point. To make matters worse, I've already put post saddles in. Anyone have any success with getting one out of concrete? This seems impossible. If I can remove the saddles I could at least adjust a new post bracket to align the posts. Help!

Probably have to cut it off with a sawzall or hit it with a grinder. Then use tapcons when you relocate the new one assuming you have that much room to play with.

Depending on how large the footings are to start with moving the post 5" off-center may cause the footing to settle irregularly. You may need to remove it and put a new one in the correct location. Pictures would certainly help.
