Saints free up $4M in cap space through Sheldon Rankins contract restructure

https://saintswire.usatoday.com/2020...n-kamara-news/

We’ve got a live one: the New Orleans Saints shuffled some salary cap resources early Saturday morning, with NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reporting that they modified their contract with defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins. Rankins was set to earn almost $7.69 million while playing on his fifth-year option in 2020, and that’s still the case. But the Saints got creative to clear $4 million this season.

It’s a good article, thanks for the share. I’m also curious if this is a prelude for a Kamara contract..., or something else? Can’t imagine what that “something else” might be though.

I don't see how it could be for Kamara's contract since it is an extension which doesn't affect this yer's cap. Clay Matthews?

It looks like we are planning on bringing in another player since we freed up four million dollars.
