Saints Nation: Saints' Cap Status for 2013 In Very Rough Shape
 
With the news of the new Brees deal and the talk of the Saints' cap status being in poor shape - I thought I'd look into the numbers more closely. The Saints were just over $2 million under the cap prior to the contract, which saved the Saints almost exactly $5.9 million worth of cap space for 2012. So as of today, the Saints actually have ~$8 million of cap room for this season prior to the Nick Toon contract which still needs to get done.

Bushrod and Ellis are two guys who'll free-up a lot of cap for next year, and if they roll over the cap they haven't used this season - the about $8M as of know - they'll have plenty of cap to work with come next offseason.

They are forgetting that Loomis is a friggin genius, I trust that our cap will look great after he does his annual tweaks to players contracts

in loomis i trust

Not worried. If we just gave a punter 22 million, we don't have any cap problems.

Its what our GM does best.

Loomis got Drew deal done. He'll get their deals done. Hell lets worry about this season. Before start on next year. IN LOOMIS I TRUST

I thought Bushrod reworked his contract......I could be wrong. We can save a ton by letting Ellis walk next year.

You may be right about Bushrod, I'll check.

Ellis is a free-agent next year so I wouldn't mind keeping him if the price is right, but his 2012 salary ain't even close to what he's worth. At worst he's an average NFL DT.


Edit: Nope, no extension for Bushy yet!!!
