GALETTE & De La PUENTE Receive 2nd Round Tenders

New Orleans tenders two more RFAs
March, 9, 2013
Mar 910:48AM ETBy Pat Yasinskas | ESPN.com
We heard Friday night the New Orleans Saints had placed the second-round tender on restricted free agent Chris Ivory.

But the running back isn’t the only one getting that tender. Center Brian de la Puente and defensive end Junior Galette also have been designated for the $2.023 million tender. Other teams can make offers, but the Saints would have the right of first refusal and would receive a second-round pick if either player were to leave.

The tender is likely to prevent other teams from making offers. De la Puente has emerged as a solid starter and Galette should have a chance to be an edge rusher as the Saints switch to a 3-4 defense.

The tenders leave the Saints about $6 million over the cap. That means more moves have to come before Tuesday, and veterans Will Smith, Jonathan Vilma and Roman Harper are candidates for restructure or release.
Sounds like Smith, Harper and maybe even Vilma may be cap casualties

I don't see anyone giving us second rounders for any of the three.

I don't think thats the point of the second round tender....I think its a way to scare teams away so they can keep them and also give them some time to see what they can do during this season if they sign the tender before they commit to a long term deal. Think thats the reason they did it with Ivory too. Want to see if he can stay healthy & can perform before they make a decision if they want to trade him or one of the other RBs.

Might be a great move on Galette.

We get a whole season to see if he can play that outside LB, and it only costs us 2 mill

If he flames, we can cut him for nothing. If he explodes, we can work out a long term deal

How does the tender work regarding cuts?
Is the money guaranteed,or can we cut the player for no cap loss?

I think its guaranteed if the player signs the tender.

Most don't want to sign it because they're discussing long term options.

solid way to give a player a pay raise without killing the cap. as for the space i think there maybe news of some reworked deals coming out soon. or cuts?

I really hope we can keep DLP. He has been nothing but good since he stepped into the linup.
