Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

If you haven't heard, our fourth round selection which cost two draft picks to acquire that pick, DL David Onyemata, Manitoba (Canada) was also drafted by the Saskatchewan RoughRiders of the CFL (Canadian Football League) in the fourth round; he was projected the top of his CFL class...


Consider this possibility - suppose he chose to play for Saskatchewan offered him more money than what is allotted for his draft selection in accordance with the current Collective Bargaining Agreement Rookie Pool?

Well, went to OverTheCap.com and looked up the slotted contract for pick #120.* The contract has a total value of $2,882,334usd with a signing bonus of $542,344usd and contract values of sequential order of $585,586usd (2016), $675,586usd (2017), $765,586usd (2018), and $855,586usd (2019)...

Judging from what CFL players make these days (Football is not their day jobs - like the good ole days of our grandfathers), and add in the Canadian socialist income tax and healthcare system, I wouldn't consider the CFL draft selection a threat...

There's probably some work visas that are being expedited through Immigration and the US State Department and that's what is holding up the contract...

And there may be some US Labor/Immigration Law, Nigerian Labor/Immigration Law and Canadian Labor/Immigration Law adaptations to the contract that have to be wrangled out; leave it to Sean Payton to turn in a homework assignment to p*ss off the teacher...

* Rookie Draft Pool- Over the Cap (Hover over Pick No.120 (Texans Row, but it'll show Saints) for contract value

Streif's experience trumps Peat's inexperienced athleticism, so you're right in that regard...

But, eventually Strief's age will cause the ineveitable veteran crash and I'd rather just slide Peat over in an easier transition and plug in a developed guard, perhaps Landon Turner, perhaps a draft pick or FA next season...

It makes no sense to trade Peat now except for an elite defensive front seven prospect or wide receiver and there're none that'd give us the value that we'd send in Peat for the next three years...

Well, that's interesting as he seemed to play some of his best ball from the interior...

That mentioned "curve" is the elephant in the room...
