This is what scares me about all these restructures. Their cap numbers will grow for the remaining years, and that also means the potential dead money if cut early grows too. Of course I can't see the overall picture at once like Loomis can so I am doing my best to trust that this won't end in another cap mess down the road.

MI will not be cut. Regardless of his play or lack there of. It is only 3 more years and by that time all 31 million of dead money will be gone. We will be in great shape.

I'm liking that Boldin thought. Let someone else take Retreadwell. He's going to end up in the okay to average category in the big league.

Re: Saints restructure contract of RB Mark Ingram

I get making salary cap room, but here's one of the things that bothers me...

When you guarantee the money, you guarantee the player's playing status....

To me, what makes a man get up to go to work in the morning is hunger and obligations and fear of being replaced...

When you take that motivation away, you've ruined a good player...

The Big Mo definitely handicaps the Bigger Mo...

Re: Saints restructure contract of RB Mark Ingram

The thing that bothers me is the FO restructuring all these contracts to make room, when only one contract could be restructured and extended and would give them plenty of room.

What the hell is the hold up on Brees? None of this would be necessary if a damn contract could be agreed upon.

In fact all this tells me is that negotiations are stale.
