RE: Boo cut

The Saints are in the position that is much better than some teams ala Oakland, Washington, Miami, the Jets. A lot of teams are going to have to cut a lot of really good players to get under the cap. The Saints don't really have to cut anyone at this point and we will make it under the cap by a mile. This does not mean we can expect a giant free agency spending spree however as the uncapped year next year will make contracts to high draft picks and high priced free agents very dicey.

This is the link for Cap status IF there's no CBA and 92 mil is the cap:

Here's the link for possible cap casualties: (bold players are already cut, i.e. Boo)

Duece, I'm not going to do your work for you forever.

We do ask that links be posted in accordance with the article, not only to reaffirm the validity, but also to give credit to the author, if there is one.

No shocker on Boo, just a year late.

BnB, Hey, I respect that approach. I'm just busting on Duece. If you look at my posts, you'll see I back my stuff up with the proper links for EXACTLY the reasons you give.

RE: Boo cut

never mind that question just looked at the second link. good good link. thanks man. well cutting arron now seems like an absolute have to. mayberry would be a foolish cut. i think the guy is still good and it doesn't save us anything to get rid of him.
