2014 Salary Cap- Updated

As of today we are about $4.5 million under. Since only the top 51 players count against that number, we won't see much fluctuation. (For example, If we cut Toon and keep Morgan, we would save $100K, but would lose it back in dead money.)
The decision to keep a third QB, and who ends up winning the kicking job might net another half million (cutting Shane Graham would only cost us 10,000)

The Saints will also like to keep some set aside in case they need an injury replacement, etc. during the year. In addition to top 51, IR, PuP and practice squad eat into that. While that isn't much, it is calculated.

Signed the best available free safety to the highest contract in history at the position.
Locked up arguably the best tight end in the game to a four year deal with the highest salary at the position.
Taunted the falcons with what would have been their best safety and then signed him.
Resigned our starting right tackle.

And the Saints are 4.5 million under the cap.

We're supposed to be in cap hell.

Loomis for President!

Don't see us signing or extending anyone right now, except maybe Ingram for a lower cap number/more guaranteed money; and that seems like it is more in a prove-it mode anyway...

Wouldn't mind using some of that cap room to sign a depth lineman. Adam Carriker is supposedly healthy again, he would look nice in the rotation.
