Murphy - Why? Good returner, dirt cheap

Hawthorne - Should restructure

Strief - a good guy to keep as a reserve at OT

Evans - Agreed

Colston - At 6 million, pay cut or gone

Spiller - we wouldn't save anything at all. Cheaper to keep him

Ellerbe - Why? When healthy hes a stud. I see a restructure and we keep him.

Khiry - Depends on how he heals up

Browner - Absolutely. Duh!

Brees - C'mon man, really?

Literally no clue why Murphy would get released? Sure he fumbled the ball once but you need to let him atone for himself.

If we threatened to release a player after a bad play, Brees would be long gone by now.

2016: Drew @$30 mil + 52 guys league minimum = $51,580,000, cap is $150,000,000. That leaves $98,420,000 in dead money for guys either injured or not on the team anymore. At this rate it sounds about right to me, Loomis has already gotten the team a big chunk of the way there.

"Make it happen, Loomis!"

Someone tell me how Drew wouldn't be on the team next year when he comes with a 33 million dead money hit?

It's only $33 million because New Orleans is below sea level. At or above it's only $16 million!!

I'm with you on this one. Brees and Payton era is over. If Payton stays Brees will ask to be dealt. I don't agree with Byrd. We paid for him and he's been pretty solid. We would have to address his position anyway if he left. The pieces are in place for us to have a pretty damn good defensive backfield if we get a pass rusher and ****can Browner.
Maybe talk him into restructuring. We kind of have him over a barrel. Nobody will pay him after seeing how he started his career here. He will have to choose either restructure or sit out.

Why would Bree's ask for a trade if Payton stays?

Ellerbe, Murphy, Spillers and Evans probably won't be going anywhere. With both the Guard backups becoming FA's I can't see them cutting Evans. Even know I think Colston should be cut I don't believe he will. That would leave us with little to no depth/experience. Strief, Browner, Hawthorne and Robinson are gone. I could see Bush and depending on how he returns from his injury Lewis being traded.

Browner played for the Seahags and the Pats before coming here so he is well into his career. We will cut him and he will retire. No way anyone pays him after this season.

Brees would be gone by now?????? You must be a new Saints fan. You must forget AB, Jeff Blake, Billy Joe Tolliver, Billy Joe Hobert, Danny Wuerffel, Jim Everett and Wade Wilson. Brees changed everything about the Saints. Drew is having his worst season as a Saint and has 3500 yards, 23 TD's with 11 INT's. He is on pace for 4600 yards, 31 TD's with 14 INTS. Not just better than any other Saint in history but better than 90% of the qb's currently playing.
