$20 Million over the Cap in 2015. What would you do?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I wouldn't mind seeing Ben Grubbs & Jahri Evans cut. Move Tim Lelito to guard. Sign G Mike Iupati, and C Stefen Wisniewski. Draft a couple interior lineman in the draft for depth & to develop. Sign Reggie Bush cheap, ...

I wouldn't mind seeing Ben Grubbs & Jahri Evans cut.

Move Tim Lelito to guard. Sign G Mike Iupati, and C Stefen Wisniewski. Draft a couple interior lineman in the draft for depth & to develop.

Sign Reggie Bush cheap, and mostly as a primary 3rd down back. Draft a RB somewhere in the draft.

Sign Antonio Cormartie. If Vaccaro gets it together and Byrd stays healthy, we'd have a decent secondary.

Draft an OLB with the 13th pick to play opposite of Galette.

Cut Bunkley & Hawthrone

Have some faith in the young blood to step in and fill roles.

Don't want Bush back,injuries are affecting him more than PT. Thomas is cheap can do everything and should be kept.

I wonder how much of Evans and Grubbs struggles are due to Goodwin being both past his best and constantly struggling with injuries rather than there poor play. Get somebody like Collins or Erving who can potentially play at T or G and if the beat out one of the Vets great or they play the swing back up for a year to come in next year

I strongly believe this to be the case. The line played much better with Lelito in there. I think it's worth keeping both Grubbs and Evans and seeing what they can do with a better center. If not, well then either one would be pretty easy to move in a preseason trade. No matter what we still need to get an OL very high in the draft.

Gallete has taken care of himself. He won't be back.

I like the preseason trade if need be for Evans & Grubb.

If Galette is gone. Maybe Edabali can fill his role & add $10+ million to the cap. Draft another OLB opposite.

Sign more players with the added cap space.

Don't think Galette will be gone,that 12ml roster bonus is fully guaranteed

No way we could get rid of Galette, unless his contract is voided somehow

Absolutely tragic. The guy comes from nowhere to be on a contract that exceeds all the lifetime wealth of blackandgold.com's membership.

I just read fully guaranteed! Dang!

I'd rather see a cut with $15 million added to the cap in 2015. That could definitely sign two notable defensive players like an OLB + a CB.

his contract is a piece of cake to redo and should be the first one done ... oh if he is found not guilty and/or league suspension. suspension for bad press not guilt still rubs me the wrong way
