2023 Saints Salary Cap Watch

It coming into that time of year again when creatively constructed contracts begin to turn into readily available cap. One of my favorite times of the off-season.

Last season the Saints went into this period setting at more than $100 million over the projected 2022 cap. As we all know, the higher than normal deficit was due to the lower than expected cap number itself. Things are getting back to normal and the cap should continue to skyrocket throughout the upcoming years of colossal broadcast deals.

The Saints come into the 2023 season at between $53 and $57 million over depending upon the final cap figure. Spotrac.com has them at $-53.425 on the all 53.

I'm going to be posting the cap adjustment moves as they occur here.

I really love peace and quiet. - Barry Sanders

I think he's Probably been sleeping pretty comfortably. He had it all planned out when he wrote up the contracts. The easy part is now simply converting the base salaries and bonuses as needed.

Re: 2023 Saints Salary Cap Watch


Woof. If there were any doubts about the future for Michael Thomas and the New Orleans Saints, this should put them to rest. NewOrleans.Football’s Nick Underhill reports that there are additional wrinkles to the reworked contract Thomas and the Saints agreed to last week — if Thomas is active for at least four games with New Orleans in 2023, it will trigger a $30 million bonus for 2024. That’s in addition to the $31 million roster bonus the Saints moved from the 2023 salary cap calendar over to 2024, which becomes fully guaranteed in March, on the eve of free agency.

So that makes it even more likely that Thomas will be released before that $31 million comes into effect. The Saints moved that money around at the end of the 2022 season to beat an NFL deadline for restructuring contracts with a post-June 1 cut designation in mind, which lowered the salary cap hit owed for Thomas until a point where the Saints can shed as much of it as possible. That doesn’t necessarily mean Thomas is out in New Orleans (it’s possible he and the Saints circle back and restructure it yet again), but that is the likeliest outcome.
