Long term deal we would. If he played under the WR tag, we'd have to make some adjustments.

I don't think anything is gonna come from the PA complaint.

Makes me wonder how this plays out. And if not signed long term, who restructures and/or gets cut.

1.9M under. Not bad, not bad at all.

He counts towards the Pelicans cap. We're good.

He is franchise tagged. $7M is already on the books for Jimmy.

If he is tagged as a WR, then moves will need to be made to accommodate that.

re: Saints $1.9M Under the Cap After Signing Rookie Class


Yeah that sounds about right. I think the rookie class was estimated to cost about $1.2m with the 27th pick and a 3rd rounder(top 51 rule in play). 20th without the 3rd rounder likely costs the same cap wise. We had $3.1m in space before iirc.

Most of that is from Cooks and a little from JB. The rest might count "pennies" more than the guys they replaced in the top 51.

So barring a higher adjustment for Jimmy, that will be money for the 52nd, 53rd, and PS players once the regular season starts and a little left over for an emergency signing or two.
