The New Orleans Saints declined to extend the contracts of three players for whom they had exclusive rights.

The contracts of offensive lineman Ryan Seymour and defensive tackles Lawrence Virgil and Austin Brown expired on Wednesday and the Saints chose not to renew them.

All three players are now free agents.

Really had looked forward to seeing Virgil come back and have an impact as a rotation guy for us...

Newly updated NFLPA records show the New Orleans Saints with only $2.57 million of space available under the salary cap.

The numbers appear to reflect all the Saints signings during the last week of free agency. It's not clear if the numbers include the restricted free agent tenders issued to tight end Josh Hill and guard Tim Lelito. Unofficial NOLA.com estimates showed the team with $4.06 million available (or $1.69 million when the tenders are included). The reason for the discrepancy was not clear...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency


We should extend Armstead this offseason. These deals are ridiculous and next offseason Armstead (his agent) could ask 15mil per year easily. Armstead is way better player than Okung...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

This tells me that Drew will restructure and preliminary discussions have already been done.

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Don't know that we have to restructure with Brees just yet...

We still have a much overpaid punter that can either be released or have his contract re-done at a league average for an average punter...

Re: 2016 Saints Free Agency

Saints scheduled to visit with Nick Fairley, sign Jamarca Sanford

The Saints made the signing of linebacker James Laurinaitis official on Thursday and that may not be the only defensive player they pick up from the 2015 Rams.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that defensive tackle Nick Fairley is set for a visit with the Saints
. Fairley spent last season with the Rams after four years with the Lions.

Fairley played 15 games with the Rams last season and had 29 tackles and a half-sack as part of a strong defensive line rotation in St. Louis. He started 30 games during his last three years in Detroit.

Fairley has also drawn interest from the Eagles and Jets since the start of free agency. The Jets signed Jarvis Jenkins and Steve McLendon this week, however, and may be out of the market for further additions to the defensive line at the moment.

The Saints also announced that they have re-signed safety Jamarca Sanford. He appeared in all 16 games last season and saw most of his action on special teams.
