Saints have a bail out option on Smith in 2014? hmmmm big year for Smith. I would love to see if that is still in place and what the details are.

If I remember it correctly, the 2014 year was optional in the original contract the Saints gave Smith, but it's no longer optional in the restructured contract the Saints made with Smith last offseason. They did that so that they could have one extra year to spread out the prorated signing bonus, so if this newest restructure hasn't changed it - I think Smith is signed for the next two seasons.

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

Per Brian McIntyre of Yahoo.com "According to a source with knowledge of the reworked deals, Smith and Vilma reduced their cash compensation and cap numbers by nearly $11 million combined."

"Smith was scheduled to earn $10.15 million in cash compensation in 2013, including a $1 million roster bonus on the 15th day of the league year, a $9 million base salary and a $150,000 workout bonus. Smith was scheduled to count $14.502 million against the cap. In the renegotiated deal, Smith's $1 million roster bonus and $150,000 workout bonus remain, but his salary has been reduced to $3 million, a $6 million pay cut that lowers his cap number to $8.502 million for the upcoming season."

"The 2014 season on Smith's contract, which calls for a $10.4 million base salary, $1 million roster bonus and $150,000 workout bonus, was unchanged."

Seen chatter that 2014 is a club option, but haven't seen an article regarding same; and wouldn't rolling some money forward still count against Saints cap in 2014?

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

With Reed looking like a signature away from being a Texan the Ravens are reportedly looking at Huff to replace him in their backfield - bad news for your dream of bringing him over JP.

Ravens among NFL teams interested in safety Michael Huff, source says - baltimoresun.com

Yeah, I was hoping the Saints Brass would take a closer look and realize what he could do for our secondary...

I'm surprised Alexander seems to be being overlooked by everyone.
The Chargers didnt put any big tender on him from what I have read.

From what I understand, they have a right of first refusal in matching qualifying offers; if they don't match, they get no compensatory pick...

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

i think the remaining WR are going to be third tier one year deal type of players. the amount of money wallace signed for scared a lot of people

looking at the roster at rush LB type of LB on the roster

Butler would compete for snaps with Will Smith(?), Martez Wilson and Junior Galette

thats why this is so fun. waiting to see were everyone settles in at
