Saints facing a cap mess in 2013

Re: Saints facing a cap mess in 2013

I don't think we should say goodbye to Vilma Just yet. He's been injured this entire season in and out of the courtroom , playing with a new DC and SP is gone. That was hardly a fair shake. And he still performed better than expected. Lofton and Vilma are sure Tacklers ... As a Saints fan the last thing I want to see is us giving up a Pro Bowl Linebacker for a Shoestring diving idiot.

Smith to me is long gone. No production at all for what we are paying him ...

Restructure Brees , Graham in a backloaded contract.

Heck if we're getting rid of anyone I want at least 1 of the RB's gone , and Roman Harper. That man can't cover his feet with a Blanket in bed.


Sign Dwight Freeney or Draft a Stud DE ,

You Can't Say Impossible without first saying Im Possible ...

I think they find a way to bring back Vilma at a friendlier number.

Loomis looked at all this and developed several courses of action. Not that concerned about it.

Re: Saints facing a cap mess in 2013

Brees isn't about to restructure anything other than his man cave. His contract is just was he demanded. It's easy for the most ill-informed to suggest restructuring his freshly minted deal, along with the others proclaiming how they'd offer various FA talents vet minimum with a "heavily incentive laden contract." Players will only hand you a hearty FU through their agents, then sign elsewhere. Did Peyton offer to renegotiate?

I've seen dozens of posts hollerin "Just pay the man whatever he wants." during negotiations with Brees. I couldn't disagree, considering the value of Brees to this franchise. Simple fact is that the Saints had no choice if they'd like to see the promised land again over the next 3 years. We really can't compete for any D FA studs due to this deal. Players and depth will be lost, yet we likely can't get another franchise QB anytime soon. I simply cannot hate on any NFL player getting all they can while the gettin's good. The next snap may easily be their last.

Well played, Drew. You've earned it, dawg.

Imitating my game is the most sincere form of flattery.

He won't win another SuperBowl if he doesn't have the supporting cast...

It would be funny if it was even close to true, but it isn't.

Got a lot of over priced players under performing. Don't see the cap problem. Only problem I see is if we keep them. If you're the worst defense of all time then you can't do much worst in rebuilding.

Re: Saints facing a cap mess in 2013

No doubt Loomie has it under control. I doubt he woke up one morning and said, "jeesh, we're screwed."

I'm not worried. Frankly, as has been mentioned here any many times before, we need to keep the core together and I think we will, but we have some high-priced dead weight, especially on defense, that probably won't be on the team next year.

Not worried about it a'tall.
