Can't do **** with Evans until after next season, his dead money would hurt too much

I'd rather cut a player and have dead money on the cap than keep a player that's under performing and is simply not bothered about it.

Not true, if we cut Evans this offseason we would gain 6 million. If we designated him a June 1 cut it would be a 7.5 million savings. It is good that Loomis did not restructure very many deals this offseason for this exact reason.

In fact the only significant negative dead-money guys for 2015 are Byrd, Galette, Keenan, Streif, Vacarro and Cooks. Even cutting Graham wouldn't really kill you too bad since the salary cap is going up anyway.

IMO, we would be smart to let Evans go. He's not a great player anymore and barely a good one most weeks. Not his fault, he's just got too many chronic injuries. Build around Armstead, Grubbs and Lelito, that's a damn good start on the OL.

Cutting Graham would cost us 11.9 million. Keeping him would cost us 11 million. It would be beyond foolish to cut Graham.

I didn't say we should cut him. I was simply pointing out that if they for some reason decided to, even that wouldn't be cap suicide.

Say what you want about Loomis, but he has set the cap structure up in such a way that he'll never be handcuffed by it.

Re: Alright People with cap knowledge

as i see it the only real option is Drew redoing his contract. Other than that the savings do not out weigh the cost of a replacement in most cases.

to cut anyone at this time would be an act of suicide. Cap and team wise. No depth and no replacements on the roster.

Add pieces first then start the talk of cuts. we need to start laying the ground work now because 2017 is not that far away.

2017 is the magic year for the saints. just look at the site Danno posted.

If we get lucky in the 2015 we maybe able to make a move or two in 2016 when the dead money hits become even less than what they are for 2016.
