Saints are carrying the most dead money in the NFL

One of the results of remaking your roster on the fly is that teams accumulate a good amount of dead money. And in New Orleans’ case, it equates to a $21.7 million hit.

The number is the biggest in the NFL. It became inflated in recent weeks with Jimmy Graham ($9 million in dead money), Ben Grubbs ($6 million), Curtis Lofton ($5 million), and Pierre Thomas ($830,000) leaving town. The hit will clear next season and become available cap space.

Re: Saints are carrying the most dead money in the NFL

banking cap? i guess. i was surprised we were eating all of this dead road kill with out trying to flip over first to a better contract. kind of hand ties us.

20 million for 2016? to early to escalators in players' contracts.

lets see FA in 2016
Cam Newton QB CAR

can not over look these options
Robert Griffin III QB WAS
Kirk Cousins QB WAS

an ironic move anyone? swap QBs?
Philip Rivers QB SD

oh what do do with all the money

then there is
Julio Jones WR ATL

That's why I don't post 'In Loomis we trust"...

I've learned to place my trust in God...

All others, show cash...
