2015 off season Beer Budget moves

$161.3 million of a 140 to 146 million dollor cap in 2015

Restructure a contract -- a win-win proposition.

Converts a players' salary or roster bonus into a signing bonus, so the cap costs can be spread out over multiple years. The Saints do this every year, Galette and possibly Lofton, head the list.

The Saints will have 8 players with salary cap figures in excess of $9 million and 11 players with charges in...

REFUND

Posted 12-07-2014 at 02:41 PM by xan

The State of Louisiana and the City of New Orleans provide subsidies and direct payments to the Saints organization that require issuance of debt instruments and interest payments. Rather than invest in infrastructure and education, the goodwill lathered on the Bensons and his FO was ostensibly to provide a competitive environment for a championship caliber sports franchise.

None of this has been worth it. Scandal, incompetence, blatant exploitation of the fan base, filing suit...

2014 NFL Saints Draft Review Part 1…

Updated 11-27-2014 at 09:55 AM by jeanpierre

Well, the early results of the 2014 NFL Draft for the New Orleans Saints appear headed toward another bust.

Despite obvious need on the offensive line and linebacker, the Saints Draft Team decided to thumb their nose at the obvious and try to show they are smarter than everyone else.

While it’s not rocket science, though the way the Saints Draft Decision Makers navigate the draft, they’d have you convinced otherwise, the only teams and fans the Saints outsmarted and

Saints: A glimpse of the future

Posted 11-19-2014 at 09:52 AM by lee909

In the first of a two-part article I will attempt to look at were the Saints stand in the longer term. The team is a mix of older veterans (whose contracts are above what they offer to the team) and some very promising young players. Most of the Saints big contracts can start coming off the books in 2016 as contracts like Colston, Lofton, Bunkley etc will be at a point where the dead money is not too high to be written off if the team is in need of cap space or has found a better alternative.

What i tell you ! !! !

If you read my previous posts, I was right about the Saints not running the ball enough and committing to any of our running backs. I honestly think we would have success with any of the backs if we gave them enough touches. How can anyone get into a rhythm when our backs stat line looks like this: Ingram 8 carries, Thomas 7 carries, and Robinson about 9 carries ? ? ?? I understand running back by committee but I knew if we stuck to someone, anyone, that would open our team up as a whole....
