Re: Free agents 2014

So we currently have an estimated salary cap space of
$5,182,990usd.

New Orleans Saints Salary Cap - 2014 Breakdown

To retain Graham, we might have to cut the following players to get under the cap:

RB Darren Sproles $3,500,000
RB Pierre Thomas $2,300,000
WR Lance Moore $2,531,250

And have room to sign our restricted free agents, mainly S Rafael Bush...

Know he's looked at as the Golden Calf, but why not designate him with the non-exclusive option and see if a team is willing to give up two first round picks?!?

We could solidify the offensive line in free agency with that money and have a number of options available at Tight End in the draft...

Damn, The contracts of Grubbs, Lofton have been huge mistakes...

Kinda goes back to the "why spend it just to spend it question" doesn't it?!?

Vulnerable/Salary Cap Casualty


- Currently have $5,182,990 of salary cap space

- Jimmy Graham is the big kahuna before the Saints right now with a little more than a week to get a deal done before he may be tagged...

- The already thin offensive line is without an experienced starting center, right tackle...

- Saints representatives and representatives for Robert Meachem look to be close to a new contract...

- The defensive line looks like it will return, intact, with the exception of Tom Johnson; and we'll be up against the cap with a Cam Jordan decision next year...

- Very thin again at Linebacker and still the little cap room

- Thin at safety, with only Vaccaro under contract and Bush a restricted free agent?!?

- Can Patrick Robinson come back healthy? Is he a starter?

Re: Free agents 2014

John Clayton says the salary cap is now expected to be around $132 million... A little more than the report from a few days ago!
