Saints Cap Breakdown
 
1 Attachment(s)
As Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis and coach Sean Payton take stock in their roster and how money is allocated in relation to the salary cap, some things pop into mind that might be of interest to the general fan.
Once March 12 arrives, the NFL goes to a Top 51 accounting for salary cap. The top 51 salary cap numbers on each roster regardless of how many players are signed count against the cap, which is expected to be roughly $121.1 million in 2013.
For the Saints, No. 1 is Drew Brees ($17.4 million) and No. 51 is one of eight players with a $405,000 cap number. Including a $2.7 million adjustment, the Saints are still roughly $16.9 million over the expected cap as of Feb. 19.
In New Orleans’ Top 51, 25 offensive players, 24 defensive spots and two kickers are included. The offense and defense is nearly split evenly, with the offense accounting for 47 percent and the defense 49 percent of the Saints’ $135.9 million allocated towards the cap right now. That includes a $2.7 million adjustment in New Orleans' favor.

Regardless, the Saints have to be at or below the ceiling by March 12 at 3 p.m. New Orleans time.

Loomis, and Payton, have their work cut out, especially since there are free agents that will have to be accounted for and eventually draft picks and rookies.


this was the key thing i saw in the report. show time is right around the corner

17 million over and we don't have a LT, or Center, and we have Jimmy Graham to deal with next year.

Thats why you don't give a 4th string injury prone fumble machine like Chris Ivory 2 million per year.

To make matters worse, we are in the top 5 worst teams in the league percentage wise for cap money tied up in signing bonuses. We are living on credit and it's going to catch up to us. We could probably free up half of what we need by turning contract money on guys like Grubbs and Evans into signing bonus cash right now by restructuring as well but it is making matters worse for 2014 and 2015. We may need to bite the bullet and make guys take pay cuts or replace them with cheaper alternatives.

Same old drama machine that came out last year..... It's fixable.

You think other teams don't have the same problem?

I like having the stable of running backs we have but tbh somebody can use Ivory...
We can get something for him vs nothing.
