Saints K Garrett Hartley triggered an escalator in his contract, raising his 2013 salary from $734,000 to $2.166 million. Hartley made 18-of-22 field goals and all 57 extra point opportunities in 2012, a year after missing the entire season with a hip injury. He beat out veteran John Kasay for kicking duties in training camp. Hartley has three years left on his contract.

Saints FS Malcolm Jenkins triggered an escalator in his rookie deal, raising his 2013 salary from $2.264 million to $2.414 million. Jenkins started 13 games in 2012 and racked up a career-high 94 tackles before landing on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. However, he and teammate Roman Harper graded out as Pro Football Focus' two worst safeties on the season as the New Orleans defense was historically awful. Jenkins enters the final year of his deal and will have to learn the 3-4 defense.

Jimmy Graham triggered an escalator in his rookie deal, raising his 2013 salary from $575,000 to $1.323 million. Graham battled issues with dropping passes in 2012 as he dropped 15 balls, but he had an excuse with his wrist injury. He recently underwent surgery on the balky wrist and should return to his normally dominant self in 2013. Graham is entering the final year of his contract, so look for the Saints to lock him up this offseason. He's a prime bounce-back candidate next season.

Punter is worth every penny. End of comment.

BUT the kicker - Fartley - uh NO!

When he makes me so nervous on EXTRA POINTS much less 20 yarders that I'm calling for the return of John Kasey (who is 43 and in my opinion has 2 years leg left in him still), then Fartley either restructures or can bite me.

I know Coach Payton has a soft spot for Hartley but man, 2.6 mill against the cap? that's definitely a pet project that could literally BOOT us out a playoff birth or lose a playoff game.

I know, I know, he kicked the big-one... but since then we discovered he was using Adderall to perform. He obviously does not have ADHD because if he did he would have Adderall legally and be more focused. He semi-sucked again in 2012.

2.6 for Hartley, another reason it's time to cut him
