Re: Hawthorne takes pay cut to stay

saw the writing on the wall

no one is safe

Hawthorne's base salary was cut from $2 million to $1.19 million in 2015 and from $4 million to $1.75 million in 2016.
The newly updated records show a dramatic pay cut for veteran receiver Marques Colston, who also agreed to restructure his contract to remain with the Saints.
Colston's base salary dips from $6.9 million to $1.445 million in 2015, according to records, and from $7.7 million to $2.65 million in 2016.

......

The NFLPA currently lists the Saints at $4.33 million under the salary cap, although that doesn't yet include Tuesday's trade of Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks, which should reduce the team's net cap room by $2.5 million in 2015.

Hawthorne is slightly better in coverage than Lofton.

Smart man. He should know he has the most chance for regular playing time here and if he has a good season, we could always restructure here. There isn't much potential for a salary increase if you don't get playing time to showcase your abilities.

No doubt to that not saying much last year. Restructuring may become more prevelant after Jimmy was traded, no one is safe (except Drew).
