I'm afraid you do not understand cap dynamics.

And we're going to have a cap that is likely to be $25M higher than it is today, along with several contracts that can be restructured and roster bonuses that can be converted into signing bonuses, ect. The whole cap game has changed tremendously over the past ten years or so

If you make a habit of refusing to pay players and not showing a semblance of loyalty to those that have produced for you at an elite level than you run the risk of free agents not wanting to play for you. Iím fine with this.

Exactly. It wasn't that many years ago that the Saints had trouble getting free agents to even answer their phones and roster players counting their days toward free agency.

I was listening to a sports talk guy on the radio here in Denver. He was saying the Saints shouldn't pay him with all the weapons Brees had. He mentioned Ginn, Austin Carr, Cook, and Trequan Smith who had an outstanding rookie season. It's amazing people get paid to talk about things they actually don't watch or know anything about.

People are crazy. Sometimes I think fans would prefer to just field a team that’s a revolving door of undrafted rookies. It’s OK to have a great player.
