New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis did a nice job of guiding the Saints through a tough salary-cap situation this offseason. But Loomis is going to have to do the same thing all over again next year.

...the Saints have a league-high $143.4 million committed toward a 2014 cap thatís expected to be slightly more than $120 million...

The Carolina Panthers are fourth at $128.2 million. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have $118.5 million committed toward next yearís cap...

The Atlanta Falcons are in the best cap shape...But thatís only a temporary (as they're) likely to sign quarterback Matt Ryan to a contract extension...

We're gonna need those draft picks...

Unless we can get someone to lineup in a trade for Will Smith, Roman Harper...

You know, if we keep bringing in talent through the draft we could be on to something here. :wink:

I suspect we're gonna see a lot of rookies make the team over the next 2 years.

Oh, and we still have to sign Jimmy Graham.

Older guys who doesn't produce up to par wit their pay will have to restructure/renegotiate or get cut. Just look at Vilma and Smith. Hopefully we can draft well too and fill the roster that way.

How does Brees cap hit look? Wasn't his contract quite front-loaded?
