There are always sign and trade deals to work around the cap issues.
A team may have all the ingredients for a run except a QB like Brees. Buffalo and Houston come to mind right away.
Brees has about 2 or 3 years left, which may be attractive for a team that needs a SB QB for 2 or 3 seasons.

My hope is that he stays here, we address the few holes we have and make a run at it.
Lets face it, if we have a chance it is with Brees. I can't see him staying after next year for sure. A 27 million bill next year will be hard to swallow if they don't have the money to upgrade WR/TE/CB/OL/DL/S/RB. The good news is we seem to be set at Special teams!

He probably won't play at 27 million.

We don't need upgrades at all the positions you listed, just WR, DL and TE mostly.

With Williams returning next year we look pretty good at CB with Lewis Breaux, Swann and Williams.

We're fine at RB, S and OL for now. Those aren't glaring holes at all.

Brees isn't going anywhere. He'll sign an extension next year to spread out the remaining money over 3 years which is what is left in his career barring significant injury. I was just having fun with it yesterday saying Brees for Watt because we know it would never happen.

I agree that we are ok with most positions, I was just trying to be funny. I don't agree with you about O-line though. Evans and Strief are playing like 90 yr old men this year. They need to go and we need to upgrade those positions. Safety is one of those positions that would be good if everyone was healthy. The problem is, none of them are healthy.

O-line is as critical as NT to me. Both are essential to our success.

1. DLine - no pressure
2. OLine - 3/5 of it needs to be replaced
3. WR - no seperation, to many dropped passes

That's exactly how I feel. We have to quit offering all this big money to people, trading or cutting them and then eating the cap money.
