How about one of those flasing highway signs on the roads that mickey and sean use to get to work reminding them of the deadmoney and failed free agents. Especially at the beginning of free agency. And at draft time pictures of failed draft picks.

Getting this back on the pavement. So why was he cut? He was healthy for once so that was not the reason. He must have went off on not getting touches.

Well that is the problem - It is Payton/Loomis that have dealt these hands to themselves; and I'll say what no one wants to: Because of the one Superbowl Victory in 50 years, they've been given immunity passes by Dennis Lauscha...

There's no way they still have jobs after the 2015 season if we're in New York, Chicago or Philadelphia...

I have faith in Payton as a coach, but not as a personnel man who has no one in the house to keep him in check or call him on questionable personnel moves, he should correct this system flaw and relinquish personnel oversight to Ireland and focus on game planning, game management...

Biggest issues are going back to draft management, lack of value on draft picks; especially this too often used practice of two picks to move up to grab players that have little to no impact on the team...

And while it's true they do an amazing last minute job to put something together (and it shouldn't come to that), but we should have been getting a *** D*mn pass rusher in free agency instead of Mullethead Fleener who drops the ball on THE pivotal third down play of the game...

Payton/Loomis have painted themselves into this corner...

Re: Saints Cut C.J. Spiller

And another thing, if we've cleared out enough cap space with Brees' contract extension...

And, if we're now cutting useless player(s) who's limiting success of this team regardless of cap impact...

And, if we're gonna spend two draft picks to move up and grab a player that is highly valued...

Then, we should be willing to cut Byrd who's been rarely available and move on to the Vonn Bell era...

Re: Saints Cut C.J. Spiller

So, any reason as to why this has happened?

Payton should really do his homework before working to sign players.

Yeah Drew was the injured player that turned into a superstar, but after that we've signed Byrd and Spiller both injured. Byrd is flat out terrible and needs to be benched, Spiller never got a chance to prove he was healthy.

We literally have no direction, this team gives out big contracts and then gives up on that player the following season.

Re: Saints Cut C.J. Spiller

wow that was a year ahead of scheduled and kinda stupid. 2017 offered cap savings.

Byrd is now number one on my cut for cap list in 2017, followed by Zac
