Agreed however I will have the 'wait and see' mindset with Delvin. I still see the Big Lebowski/Dennis Allen putting their collective heads together this off season & try to acquire a vet FA corner back. Frederick showed flashes, Dixon will greatly improve with Allen back, PRob is ... well PRob and Corey White is a nickle at best.

We need depth at this position.

First of all, restructuring ALWAYS works in the player's favor. That is why it is a last resort of sorts. Secondly, Galette is due a $12.5M roster bonus meaning a cap hit in 2015 of the same. If I'm not mistaken, the Saints have the option of converting the roster bonus into a signing bonus which can then be prorated over the final five years of his contract, thus reducing the 2015 hit to $2.5M, or an immediate cap saving of $10M off this upcoming cap. Galette still gets his full $12.5M right away, therefore he's happy.

Well you did just name 4 backup CBs (should we keep all).

Robinson is the only free agent. I'm not sure a change of scenery will help him. Personally I like the guy - he's come back from injury and being benched. The players support him 100% and I hope that somehow he stays with us and develops into a solid defender.

White has a dead cap of $44k. He fell off last year but so did everyone else.

Agree we need another CB through FA.

I'd give Breaux a season to learn.

How funny would it be if one day SJB and Delvin Breaux are our starting CBs?
