Sportstrac has Browner as a free agent. Guess they know something we don't.

He could become a June 1st cut to save more against the cap.

He will be cut by March 10th hopefully they're slow with the trigger to have his cap money count for 2017


Or the Saints could choose to release Browner some time after March 9, the start of the new league year, with a post-June 1 designation. That would allow $1.3 million of Browner's signing bonus to be counted against the 2017 cap.

I actually thought Evans played well last season.

A lot of the pressures on Brees came from inside. The only O-lineman to grade out worse than Evans was Senio Kelemete.

I can understand why he wouldn't want to do it for a second year in a row. Especially at the tail-end of his career.

Re: Jahri Evans released

Let's see if any new team that signs him will give him as much as he would have gotten, taking a pay cut from the Saints. That was a pretty expensive deal to begin with. I don't know how he'll do any better on the market. It's better for us to cut him, regardless. He's had a great career, but he's too expensive even at a reduced salary to play like he has recently.
