I think cutting only Will Smith will clear that.

That would probably cut it... pardon the pun.

Cutting Smith would cost $6.8M prorated over 2013 and 2014.

Cutting Vilma would cost $2.6M prorated for 2013.

Cutting Harper would cost $3.5M prorated over 2013 and 2014.


So, there are savings to be made there, especially when considering Smith's cap hits.

Other savings could come from cutting someone like Herring ($1.6M) and restructuring someone like Moore's contract, while potentially adding one more year to the contract to decrease the base salary hikes. Jenkins is another potential restructure/contract extension if the team feels that he has something worthwhile to offer to the team going forward, which I think they do - cutting Jenkins now would bring in cap savings of little under $2.5M, but those same cap savings could be produced by a restructure/contract extension.

Another noteworthy thing is that there haven't been any contract negotiations - at least any that have been leaked to the media - between the Saints and Casillas, so it would seem that he won't be back next season.


Looking at the Saints cap hits at the moment, it isn't as gloomy as some might think. The positive thing that can be taken away from the current situation is that if Smith's and Ellis' contracts are taken off the board - the top 5 cap hits belong to the right people: Brees, Evans, Colston, Grubbs, and Lofton.

i am with fin on this one. i loved the tender and thought a second round was a nice pay raise for him.
3 years and big questions to were he will fit in.
yet another cap move that leaves me puzzled. they were doing so good too.
keep your fingers crossed

Definitely a lot more than I expected it to be as well - I mean he was getting something like $500K this past season, so that would be a huge pay increase for very limited on the field proof that he is worth that money.

$4M per annum seems way too high at the moment, but naturally if Galette blows up this coming season Loomis ends up looking like a genius.
