Nick Fairley's contract will limit 2016 salary cap hit, newspaper reports | NOLA.com

The Saints' official announcement said Fairley signed a one-year deal, but the actual contract is for three years, the Boston Globe reported. However, the final two years of the contract void automatically if Fairley is still on the roster in February.

The maneuver allows the Saints to spread Fairley's $2.235 million signing bonus over three years, instead of just one, limiting the deal's impact on the 2016 salary cap.

In practice, Fairley signed a one-year, $3 million deal, but it will count only $1.51 million against the 2016 salary cap.

Loomis at it again
Its why he's the GM, and why we're not

Brilliant!

That's a team guy right there. And he doesn't lose any money by restructuring, he just changes how and when he will get it.

I love Cam. I cant believe how many people say we need to get rid of him. That would be one of the most bone headed moves ever

Is 2 or 3 people really "that many"?

Saints sign DT Nick Fairley (1 year, $3 million): A+ Grade
The Saints had been enduring a miserable spring thus far, greatly overpaid for bad players like James Laurinaitis, Josh Hill and Coby Fleener. I had given them a Millen grade in my NFL Free Agent Team Grades page, but this signing moves them out of that territory.

This is an outstanding addition. Nick Fairley is extremely talented and would be playing for a much greater contract if teams weren't concerns for his lethargy issues. It's why Fairley had to sign a 1-year pact last offseason, and he happened to play extremely well for the Rams. It's likely he'll perform just as well for the Saints, given that he'll once again be trying to prove that he's worthy of a big contract. Fairley, who offers no downside here, fills a big hole for the Saints, who desperately needed an interior pass-rusher.

I'm going to love it when 'bad player' Coby Fleener, in tandem with Drew, comes out next year and rips the league a new one.

Love the Fairley singing. Reckon we have done well in FA.

Re: Nick Fairley - SIGNED

But he gives the fact that Atlanta' paying Mack 9.5mil a year a B Vernon getting 18mil a year a B but the Saints are overpaying Lauirinitis and Fleener. I'm not sure the guy knows what he's talking about. I don't care what he gave the Saints for the Fairley signing.

Re: Nick Fairley - SIGNED

I've got to admit it; I'm happy with the FA signings this off season. Fleener, King Lauirinitus and now Fairley. Some talented guys in positions we really need severe help in. Now they just have to perform.
