They needed a tight end, we resigned Graham.

It's like Loomis is rubbing Dimitoff's nose in his own ineptitude.

I trust Loomis, but next years cap looks awful. 12m over and that includes losing all free-agents. Even with a Brees restructure/extension we are going to be hurting.

Loomis you got your work cut out for you next year bud!

I am really not even remotely worried.
We not only survived this off season, we thrived.
Brees, Colston, Evans, Grubbs, Lofton are all next year's candidates for restructure.
Of our top 25 (highest paid) players, only Ingram and Robinson will be FA's.
Plus, our dead money should be significantly lower next year than the 10+ million this year

Re: 2014 Salary Cap- Updated

Saints are 4.5 million under the cap. hmmmmm

i count 4 players playing for their future with saints

Mechuem - Ingram - Robinson - Butler

so sign an extension for any of them? I say no at this point

wait and see and hold out till the final cuts then make a move if we need to.

the big one is Drew, next year will be the first year he will be allowed to redo his contract if he decides to.

All the others have redone theirs already so i am not expecting them sit at the table with mickey.

I hope you are not crunching all these numbers in your head ScottF.
Anyone remember when we didn't have cap issues?
It's almost kinda somewhat nice.

Brees restructure alone gets the team back into the black. And there's no way they're keeping Lofton and Bunkley at their salaries. Making just those three moves, you're already $7 million under the cap, and yes I am counting dead money. Evans and Grubbs restructures would save another $7-8 million, that's a conservative estimate.

Loomis can keep on doing this year after year until Brees retires, at which point we are probably doing a full-scale rebuild.
