Well yea, heres to hoping, but that doesnt mean its not bad cap management though. Brees will get restructured. Gallette, who knows. Evans im hoping to be realeased & agree bud.

But heres the thing.... we dont yet know what the salary cap will be next year. So idk how you would know that for sure, know what i mean? No one does. we're hoping for it to go up, & maybe it will be $140 million, like ppl believe it could.

What we know for sure - our cap as of now for 2015 is $160million+
With the guess that it could move up to $140m, that leaves us to chop $21M+ & sign free agents/draft picks. Thats no cake walk, Ya kno? But i know it will happen & so does everyone else, hell it has to get done, theres no option...so it will haha

It happens every year; "Oh no! We're in salary cap hell and we can't afford anyone!"... Loomis works his magic, gets under the cap signs a big time free agent(Byrd, Bailey); everyone calls him a genius and we move on...

Last year people were writing about Dallas cap hell and mocking them. They are now in playofs and have long term stability.

They committed high draft picks the past three drafts to their respective lines...

Yes. And Zack Martin was great pick. I watched combine and he impressed me more than any other OL player.

I would throw Graham, Grubbs and Lofton in there for pay-cuts also. Graham played no were near what he gets.

Drew's poor play can tie to bad O line play though.
Drew in my book is worth every penny. A talent like his at QB is very hard to get. Evans is a must go. Colston, which I would love to see retire a Saint needs to fix that insane contract or get released. Graham proved that most of us were right this offseason and that he is no where near worth this contract. JR did have a good season with 9 sacks. Byrd, I will hold off on seeing that he did not even play half the season. Sad to say but at this point he reminds me of Tebuckey Jones.
