Saints to get a special salary cap?

NFL working on salary-cap concessions for Saints


League sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen that the NFL is working with the players association to come up with salary-cap concessions for the Saints.

The franchise is concerned about losing its own free agents and being unattractive to free agents from other NFL teams because of the uncertainty or where it will play games.

To help, the NFL is considering salary-cap concessions that will allow the Saints to have somewhat of a financial advantage over other NFL clubs given the disadvantage the club faces because of its uncertain location.
What does it matter if the owner isn't going to want to spend the extra money?

Oh I agree clean house but having a 'special salary cap' is nuts to me, it isn't going to change anything, haven't the Redskins tried buying a super bowl and they don't even make the playoffs
