NFC South salary-cap check

The New Orleans Saints are $5.1 million under the cap. That’s the least amount of room in the division, but the Saints still have room to add a veteran or two and they’ve shown a willingness to do that in the past.

Wait till next year... Same goes for the Panzies... That's when it hits the fan! Neither team is a threat to make the SB either.

They traded away Wright who was a colossal overpayment versus actual talent on the field, and they don't have a highly paid QB like the Saints and the Failclowns (Freeman has a $9.8M cap hit).

In any case, it doesn't really matter if they have cap space or not - they won't be fighting for the division title in all likelihood.

Or carry over the unused cap for next year and make re-signing Graham a little bit easier.

Money left is carried over to next year to either cover Jimmy Graham's contract
for that year or Drew's escalation.

Cap space not spent provides great value next season.
