We save more if we trade Gallette....we take a cap hit but def get more benefits. We are also into the restructuring part of Brees contract. Also we can save if we cut bums like White, Robinson, Hawthorne. I also see us looking to bring Lance Moore back and parting ways with Meachem

Cutting Evans, Colston, Bunkley and Hawthorne and restructuring Brees puts us something like 5 million in the black. I don't think any of those players would be missed at this point.

While I do believe some players need to go,I dont think that's our primary problem. I think there's some deeper,behind the scenes problems going on in that organization. There's too much of a drop off from last year to believe it's just a player problem.

Re: Alright People with cap knowledge

Here's a good site. Click on the player and it will tell you their cap hit and dead money (what it would cost us to cut or trade them)

New Orleans Saints Salary Caps by Year

A great example of why we can't cut or trade Jimmy Graham...

His 2015 cap hit is 11 million, but it would cost us 11.9 million to cut him. Cutting or trading him would actually add to our cap.

Can he learn to block better, catch better, drop fewer balls for that kind of chump change?

Re: Alright People with cap knowledge

we're up **** creek through next year. we can't really start dumping old big contracts until after next season. Then colston, lofton, hawthorn, evans can get dumped, not before then

Re: Alright People with cap knowledge

Grubbs and Evans needs to be cut or traded. The line has become a joke. Brees has no time at all. This off season the o-line is a must fix. With a fixed o-line and I see us being at 9 wins right now.
