Cushion - 3m
Meeting the cap - 2.3m
Free agent signings - Not even going to guess
Practice Squad/ I am guessing here - 1m
Present 7 Draft picks - 4m

Still need to free up 10m
Didn't we lose two picks?.....the second and seventh I believe.
Regardless, thanks for sharing. You don't miss much.

Chamberlains Cap hit is 1.5m do you think we can find better for less?
Herrings Cap Hit is 2m... same question

They both also come with dead money if we cut them, Herrings dead money is 333k, Chamberlains dead money is 800k... So add that to the cost of new line backers.

Re: Saints March 5th Cap Status

Yeah, I think both Herring and Chamberlain will remain with the team, and both are fairly affordable.

Don't know if they are planning on bringing back Casillas though, so they do need some depth when it comes to LBs.
