I believe we are about 2M over, first year of Jairus' contract only causes something like 4 or 5M cap hit, one person restructuring or sproles being traded should push us back below the cap

we were at 1.9 under, then PT restructuring his 3 million probably knocked off at least 1 million, so we're at 3 million under.

Trading or cutting Sproles drops us to about 6.5 million under.

Byrd probably is right at 5 million so we're basically about 1.5 million under.

Obviously more restructures coming, especially Bunkley.

We have GOT to find a way to keep Bunkly.

There's a gift and a curse to this deal.... Listening to Bill Polian on the radio today he basically said, Loomis is a cap genius and he ( Loomis) wouldn't have made this Bryd deal if he were not really close to signing Graham and bringing his (Graham) cap number down with a long term deal.. But he said, there could a team out there willing to offer graham more money than the Saints could offer Jimmy.... that would be the only way the gamble doesn't work...

Then we take 2 firsts from them = win/win in my book

Took the words out of my mouth: win-win situation. Our defense is set to be elite for years to come and I'm pretty sure we could replace Graham with one of our potential four 1st round picks in these next two drafts.
