Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

Agent's Take: Where -- and for what -- top free agents will sign - CBSSports.com

Originally Posted by Joel Corry | CBSSports.com View Post

Nnamdi Asomugha (CB)

Background: The Philadelphia Eagles released Asomugha after he wouldn't take a substantial pay cut from the $15 million he was scheduled to make this year. He received a nice parting gift from the Eagles because $4 million of his 2013 base salary is fully guaranteed without an offset.

Suggestion: Asomugha should find a team that plays to his strength as a press coverage cornerback. Dunta Robinson was able to land a three-year, $13.8 million contract (with $3.95 million guaranteed and up to an additional $1.5 million in base salary escalators) from the Kansas City Chiefs after he was released by the Atlanta Falcons. Asomugha should target the same type of deal.

Prediction: Asomugha is unable to get a deal similar to Robinson's in such a depressed cornerback market. He chooses the New Orleans Saints over the San Francisco 49ers because of his familiarity with Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who was his defensive coordinator with the Oakland Raiders for five seasons.


Michael Huff (S)

Background: Huff was an Oakland Raiders cap casualty after spending most of the 2012 season at cornerback. He is better suited at safety but teams could find his versatility attractive. Huff is expected to visit the Baltimore Ravens next week.

Suggestion: Huff should insist that the three-year, $12 million deal Ed Reed rejected is a starting point for negotiations with the Ravens since he is almost five years younger than Reed. A one-year deal could also make sense so Huff can re-establish himself as a safety after his stint at cornerback. Chris Clemons signed a one-year, $2.75 million deal to remain with the Miami Dolphins.

Prediction: Huff signs with the Ravens over the Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys.

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

Has anyone been able to get accurate available cap space figures - I'm currently at approximately two to two and a half mil avail this season...

And would total cap include/exclude rookie contracts allotment?

Harper looks like he's headed for a restructure or release with 3.5 mill over two years in dead money...

no idea. i would be shocked for a straight out release and that carryover.

i will stick to the rumor that he was going to restructure and i bet the paper work is already done and the signings are all thats needed

There would be 3.5 in dead money, but it would be over two years...

spotrac.com has Harper at 6.25mil/annum for 2013, that would mean 4.5 mil made avail this year at a min by releasing Harper...

Or if we could take the entire hit this season, it still would mean 2.75mil more avail this season by releasing Harper...

If restructure rumours are true, wonder why the delay in the announcement?!?

Maybe the Saints are trying for a reducture instead. He'd be much less enthusiastic about that.

Harper's new contract is all drawn up and agreed upon i bet. just sitting on Mickey's desk waiting on the new player and the signatures. We are all set to go.
