Saints 2020 Salary Cap

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Before any roster moves, Loomis has an estimated $4,860 left to spend. So we're purchasing a 10 year old Honda Accord with 160,000 miles. https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/new-orleans-saints/cap/...

Re: Saints 2020 Salary Cap

I’m a little surprised more hasn’t been made of this. In the other thread we talked about Brees costing us $21.3 mil in dead cap next season regardless of whether he’s re-signed or not. If we sign him to another two year deal as we’ve been doing he’ll be costing us close to $50 mil in cap space.

Teddy Bridgewater will account for $4 mil in dead cap.

We can cut Janoris Jenkins and save $11.25 mil with no dead money. Or, we can extend him and knock down that $11.25 mil cap hit by quite a bit. Problem is, he turns 32 next season. How much do you want to invest in a 32 year old CB?

Same issue with Larry Warford. He has a $12.875 cap hit next season (last year of his deal.) Do we extend him at 29 years old? Cutting him frees up $8.5 mil but then we’re left having to replace both our LG and RG.

Re: Saints 2020 Salary Cap

The Brees deal is only an issue if he doesn’t come back but the other issues plus the needs elsewhere still only leave us with a little bit of money to address these issues. Our window has just about closed unless we hit a homerun in the draft.

I donít know man, not having a single QB under contract and only about $5 mil in cap space is going to be tricky. No doubt we can re-sign Brees and Taysom, but weíre going to have to cut some significant contributors.

TA, Patrick Robinson, Jenkins and Easton need to fix their crazy contracts or kick rocks. TA is set to make 16 mil and Jenkins is set to make 12

Re: Saints 2020 Salary Cap

Loomis will restructure, resign and cut us into having millions to spend in 2020. He's done it for nearly 20 years. He is a cap guru.

TA will probably have his deal reworked again. Jenkins was the best player in the secondary by far yesterday. Everyone else was absolutely abysmal except for CGJ and he was ok. Maybe Easton is Peat’s replacement and the Saints knew they weren’t bringing him back next year.

I don’t know if it was scheme for Lattimore or if he was just having a bad game but he just looked so frustrated yesterday.

and Peats a FA. Can't see us letting both guards go. Warford probably stays, Peat walks.

Re: Saints 2020 Salary Cap

Kiko is making 6.3 m with no dead money; he definitely will be cut.

Rankins is making 7.6 m; no dead money if cut.

Robinson is getting cut only 2.5 m in dead space.

Cutting these 3 gives us 22m in space.

Jenkins deal will probably be restructured. Doubt we sign Apple and we will need a #2.
