Need to free up some first ... lots of work ahead.

We've got some $34.5 million in roster bonus for simple conversion. Should free up some $28-$29 million.

It looks like we can free up an additional $91 million through simple salary conversions.

We also have $3.6 million in 2023 rollover. All of this can be done with no, or minimal, player or agent intervention so it is readily available.

So, without any negotiated contract restructuring we can cover the annual deficit and have up to around $39-$40 million available for free agency and draft picks (usually around the $5 million range).

That's easily enough for a dozen or more free agent signings with the way Harley structures the deals.

Dorance Armstrong - DE Dallas Cowboys

Very consistent player that gets in the backfield.

Saints need more effective pass rushers badly. Running QBs have killed N.O.

Here's one free agent we need to keep. We've let too many go over the past few years and not because we couldn't afford them.

Keep an eye on KC Chiefs Drue Tranquill.

Big game experience, legit tackler & gets to the QB.

Won't break the bank either.

I'd also move on from Zach Baun.

Spend on the DLine (especially DE).

Draft the OT, WR and LB.
