Saints cap situation as of Today

According to Pat Yasinskas sorry I don't have a link Im on the road and my friend sent me this

And now the news that you’ve been waiting for. With all their rookies under contract, the Saints now are only $397,339.18 under the salary cap. That means they’ll have to restructure contracts or release veterans if they are going to make any other significant moves.

They should have that $.82 already.
I've been giving Loomis my $0.02 on every issue that's come along for quite some time now.

I don't see us making any mores now unless we a significant injury. :knocksonwood:

I think that's right.

It seems to me that Brees would be restructured early if an emergency arises. Lets face it, what difference does it make if we extend his contract to where we're still paying after he retires. Chances are pretty good our next QB won't be making $20 mill a year and we'll absorb the dead money at that time (isn't that what the Patriots are doing with Brady????).

re: Saints cap situation as of Today
I don't know how accurate that is. He may have just looked at the 1st year of each deal and taken it out of our cap which would make this inaccurate as the top 51 rule is in play.

Vaccaro took up about $1.5 mil and each 3rd rounder took between $25,000 to $50,000(based off of last year's picks). Before we had $3.1 mil and we should have about $1.5 left.

Also, any vet minimum players would not take up any cap space(unless they get the $65,000 bonus, but it still wouldn't put us over) and I have a feeling a good bit of players will cave and sign on late in camps for the minimum.

Unlike Tampa, the Saints have never had that problem since Benson took over. The team has always spent all the money they had. At least they're trying to put it on the field.

You would be a Buc, Jag, or Brown's fan.

But yeah I would be upset unless we sucked and they were saving up for a huge FA or 2 next year(and none were that good this year).

I looked at spotrac:

They have Vaccaro and Armstead factored in and none of the other guys they are missing numbers for are bumping anyone off of the top 51.

So adjusting for their half a mil off from before we should have about $1.8 mil left.

Yas always forgets to factor in the top 51 rule when updating the cap so beware his numbers unless he says he got them from the NFLPA directly.

Oh no. Benson was tight as hell when Finks was there. We spent a little on a great Def. and screamed most years for better weapons on Off.. They thought the Def would win us games which it did but we never had a consistent Off. to go with it.

It was the salary cap that got Benson to go all in on the budget.

re: Saints cap situation as of Today
Yaszy updated today and blamed his incorrectness on the nflpa even though he never says he got that figure from the nflpa:

LINK

"The New Orleans Saints are $1.6 million under the cap. That number is a little different than what I told you the other day after the Saints had signed all their draft picks and the discrepancy was due to the fact that the NFL Players Association hadn’t updated their numbers to reflect only the top 51 cap figures. Anyway, the Saints don’t have much room to work with. They’ll need more than $1.6 million to eventually sign practice-squad players and keep some money available in case they have injuries and need to sign replacements."

He is also wrong once again about needing money to sign PS players. Most PS players get minimum, or very close to it, contracts. If any PS player(s) crack the top 51 it will only be for a sliver more than the guy they will replace.

I think we may be done with FA barring injuries and will likely roll that over to next year.
