This is a desperate season for the Saints, making it inconvenient for them to be off to an 0-3 start.

But they’ve added to their 2016 salary cap issues with their latest bid to create some short-term room.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Saints turned $5.2 million of Brees’ base salary into a signing bonus, which created $2.6 million in cap space now. That pushes his 2016 cap value to $30 million.




Chicago players maybe? Who else?

Re: Who could the Saints be creating cap space for?

JJ Watt would be about the only person I can think of that would make a difference on this D, and he ain't play for that level of coin...

Coupled with the continued hits from the Junior Galette deal and others (over $12 million in dead money next year), and the Saints are on the verge of a significant financial situation.

I'd rather add bullets to Brees's belt than another headache lineman for Roby Ryan to drop into coverage like he did with Jenkins last week...

Yep, about to pull the trigger on someone and don't be worried about The cap hit next year. Brees will be extended for 3 years with a hometown discount and everything will be great.

Not so sure on Alshon Jeffrey as they see him as an up and comer, although as a 4th year guy, he should have matured already. Think Toon here.

Wilkerson is not even a Bear. He wants big money as a Jet.
