CAP MASTER: An In-Depth Look at New Orleans Saints GM Mickey Loomis' Road Ahead in 2015

If you donít know about New Orleans SaintsĎ GM Mickey Loomis, you better ask somebody. The man is a financial genius, conquering the teamís salary cap issues every offseason.

The NFL is a business, and Loomis is one of the top dogs in the league when it comes to that aspect of the game. For those whining about the questionable draft picks, look to the scouting department, which may see some major changes after Saintsí Director of Player of Personnel Ryan Pace took the job as Chicago BearsĎ GM Thursday afternoon.

Before Pace took over that position two years ago, he was the Director of Pro Scouting for the club, assisting in the discovery of some serious talents during and after the drafts.

Back to Loomis, the brilliant budget brain of the organization may be facing one of the toughest challenges of his career this offseason. The 2015 Saints have around $161 million committed to their cap, which is more than any other team in the NFL.

The club will take a cap hit of $26.4 million by QB Drew Brees alone. Followed by LB Junior Galette ($15,450,000), TE Jimmy Graham and G Jahri Evans ($11 million each), and Jairus Byrd ($10.3 million), the elite free safety signed by the Saints in 2014, but spent a majority of the year on injured reserve.

I'd be happy to see Cox or Maxwell as the main target in FA.
Both would be fantastic additions across from Lewis. You have to wonder if another team will just be able to outbid the Saints and overpay or if either team allow them too hit the open market

Dude you are such a ****ing douchebag, and apparently you still havent figured out what a goddamned roster bonus is. With brains like that its a wonder you managed to turn on the computer and log on to this website.

If you have such a problem with me, dont worry, I am deleting my account. This board lately makes Saintsreport look like a ****ing think tank thanks to morons like you. No point in bothering with it any further.

Go Saints as always but enough is enough.

Find enough money to sign a veteran CB, a DT and a center.
