Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
90 players is the off-season roster max. We have 61 total players, so we'll be adding 29 more players before training camp begins. Most will be rookies & vet minimum type deals though.

*Copied from bonethug* If we hold steady (with our draft picks) it'll be roughly half a mil (most of that from the second rounder), as each would replace someone in the top 51 or be out of the top 51.

So whatever the cap space is ($10.4 mil currently) minus:

$500k for draft picks
$1 mil for the 52nd and 53rd players when the season starts
$1-2 mil for in season injury replacements
$1 mil for practice squad players

So we have about $6 mil clear in cap (though if need be we can use the cap now and make room for these things later).


QB(4) - Not a F.A. need.
-Drew Brees - 22.7 mil (2019)
-Teddy Bridgewater - 3.25 mil (2019)
-Taysom Hill - 645 k (2019)
-J.T. Barrett - 495 k (2020)

RB(4) - Maybe a backup RB for cheap.
-Alvin Kamara - 1.050 mil (2020)
-Latavius Murray - 1.85 mil (2022)
-Dwayne Washington - 720 k (2019)
-Martez Carter - 495 k (2019)

FB(1) - Not a F.A. need.
-Zach Line - 1.2 mil (2019)

WR(8) - Maybe a #6 WR for cheap.
-Michael Thomas - 1.628 mil (2019)
-Ted Ginn - 3.5 mil (2019)
-Cameron Meredith - 4.15 mil (2019)
-Tre'Quan Smith - 820 k (2021)
-Keith Kirkwood - 570 k (2019)
-Austin Carr - 645 k (2019)
-Simmie Cobbs - 570 k (2019)
-Travin Dural - 495 k (2019)

TE(4) - Not a F.A. need.
-Jared Cook - 4.0 mil (2020)
-Josh Hill - 1.9 mil (2021)
-Dan Arnold - 570 k (2019)
-Garrett Griffin - 570 k (2020)

Starting OL(5) - Not a F.A. need.
-Terron Armstead - 15.812 mil (2021)
-Andrus Peat - 9.625 mil (2019)
-Nick Easton - 2.5 mil (2022)
-Larry Warford - 10.6 mil (2020)
-Ryan Ramczyk - 2.424 mil (2020) 5th Year Option.

Backup OL(5) - Need a backup OT. Maybe backup OG, but I think we use the draft to address that.
-Cameron Tom - 645 k (2019)
-Will Clapp - 588 k (2021)
-Michael Ola - 645 k (2019)
-Derek Newton - 645 k (2019)
-Nate Wozniak - 495 k (2020)

ST(3) - Not a F.A. need.
-Will Lutz - 1.9 mil (2023)
-Thomas Morstead - 4.25 mil (2022)
-Zach Wood - 645 k (2019)

DT(6) - Not a F.A. need.
-Sheldon Rankins - 4.073 mil (2019) 5th Year Option.
-Malcom Brown - 2.5 mil (2021)
-David Onyemata - 2.135 mil (2019)
-Taylor Stallworth - 573 k (2020)
-Mario Edwards - 1.46 mil (2020)
-Tomasi Laulile - 495 k (2020)

DE(3) - Need a legit pass rusher to add to the rotation.
-Cameron Jordan - 14.047 mil (2020)
-Marcus Davenport - 3.123 mil (2021) 5th Year Option.
-Trey Hendrickson - 844 k (2020)

LB(6) - I doubt we add another LB via F.A. The fact that Te'o wasn't active (at the end of the year) leads to this conclusion. We can always trade for a LB in case of injuries.
-Demario Davis - 8.5 mil (2020)
-Alex Anzalone - 933 k (2020)
-A.J. Klein - 6.0 mil (2019)
-Craig Robertson - 1.7 mil (2020)
-Vince Biegel - 645 k (2019)
-Darnell Sankey - 570 k (2019)

CB(8) - Maybe a backup outside CB if Crawley can't get his head out of his ass.
-Marshon Lattimore - 4.188 mil (2020) 5th Year Option.
-Eli Apple - 2.516 mil (2019) 5th Year Option.
-Patrick Robinson - 5.35 mil (2021)
-PJ Williams - 2.25 mil (2019)
-Ken Crawley - 2.025 (2019) Original round tender...not guaranteed.
-Marcus Sherels - 735 k (2019)
-Justin Hardee - 645 k (2019)
-Chris Campbell - 495 k (2020)

S(4) - Maybe a #3 Safety for cheap.
-Marcus Williams - 1.701 mil (2020)
-Vonn Bell - 1.263 mil (2019)
-Chris Banjo - 1.5 mil (2021)
-J.T. Gray - 570 k (2019)

How do you factor in draft picks?

re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
Factor them in how?

Like into the salary cap or into our needs?

If you mean salary cap...you should probably ask someone like bonethug. There a lot of guys on this site that understand the salary cap better than I do.

If you mean our needs...you can't really say for sure until after we're done with free agent additions.

If medically cleared WANT
06 - Ezekiel Ansah, DE, Lions. Age: 30.

If he is reasonable on what he is asking for WANT
24 - P.J. Williams, CB, Saints. Age: 26.

Would not mind at all.
12 - Tre Boston, S, Cardinals. Age: 27.

would happily welcome any of these 3. Hard pass on the WR FA market.

re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
If asking about the space draft picks will take up on the cap, if we hold steady it'll be roughly half a mil (most of that from the second rounder), as each would replace someone in the top 51 or be out of the top 51.

So whatever the cap space is ($10.4 mil currently) minus:

$500k for draft picks
$1 mil for the 52nd and 53rd players when the season starts
$1-2 mil for in season injury replacements
$1 mil for practice squad players

So we have about $6 mil clear in cap (though if need be we can use the cap now and make room for these things later).

re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
I really think Bilal Powell would thrive in our offense as a third RB/pass catching back. Not sure what kinda money he’s looking for.

re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
That's why I included RB in the F.A. needs. There are still a few legit guys available that should be pretty cheap.

Doug Martin for league minimum would be nice. I would say Jeremy Hill, but there's always an issue with him.

I'd take a few of those remaining Safeties (Addae, Mitchell, Quinn, & Stewart) for league minimum as well. Tre Boston is my main target, but he'll be more than league minimum.

I'd take a chance on DE Benson Mayowa for cheap.

re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
Updated 2019 free agency cap #'s. This is pretty sick & about the best we could've hoped for imo. I don't see a single overpay here. Maybe Meredith, but he was a 2018 addition that we convinced to take a pay cut.

QB Teddy Bridgewater - 3.25 mil
RB Latavius Murray - 1.85 mil
WR Cameron Meredith - 4.15 mil (pay cut)
TE Jared Cook - 4.0 mil
OC/OG Nick Easton - 2.5 mil
OC/OG Cameron Tom - 645 k
OT Michael Ola - 645 k
K Will Lutz - 1.9 mil
LS Zach Wood - 645 k
DT Malcom Brown - 2.5 mil
DT Mario Edwards - 1.46 mil
LB Craig Robertson - 1.7 mil
LB Vince Biegel - 645 k
CB Ken Crawley - 2.025 mil (tender) Not guaranteed
CB Marcus Sherels - 735 k
CB Justin Hardee - 645 k
S Chris Banjo - 1.5 mil

Brees also gave us an extra 10.8 mil in cap space.

re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
I am not trying to be biased towards former LSU players, but I think Spencer Ware provides a solid skill set for a #3 or 4 rb.
I know that you said DT is not a need, but due to the beginning of the year injuries and possible suspensions, I wouldn’t mind resigning Davidson (for the right price). As for safety, we could a free agent pick up. There are a few names that could contribute immediately for our defense.

re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
I doubt they're opposed to resigning Davison, but I imagine it's down to price and what the market is willing to pay him.

He may be a guy that gets signed right before or right after the draft (depending on if a team gets too jumpy before the draft), but if he still isn't signed by then we could likely get him back for $1-2 mil.

Still doesn't really solve the issue of IF Onyemata gets suspended. Brown and Stallworth are NTs, and so is Davison.

Yep. We already have Brown & Stallworth. No point in having 3 NT's.

Even if Onyemata gets suspended to start the year...I think we'll just roll with Malcolm Brown, Stallworth, & Mario Edwards. Maybe even use Hendrickson as a pass rushing DT until Onyemata comes back.

We also have Tomasi Laulile at DT, to go along with any other young DT's that we bring in for the pre-season. One of those young DT's could take the #4 DT spot to start the year, but will probably be released & stashed on the PS once Onyemata can play. Imo, we're done signing DT's unless it's for the league minimum.

Unless 1 of the top 5 DT's gets injured, we're actually going to be forced to roster 5 DT's after Rankins comes back. I can't see us cutting any of the top 5 DT's besides maybe Mario Edwards, but he would have to really suck for that to happen.

Jeremy Parnell would make alot of sense as that 3rd tackle if he's not looking for a starting gig. He spent a little while in the Saints system when he initially made the switch from defensive end to offensive tackle.

The 2019 NFL offseason is continuing on its frenetic pace en route to the actual season.

So far, the New Orleans Saints have been among the more proactive teams in the league since the end of the 2018 campaign, saying farewell to some players and adding a few more as free agents.

Mark Ingram and Alex Okafor are gone, but Jared Cook, Latavius Murray, and Malcom Brown among others will be making their debut in the black and gold in New Orleans.

There is still a long way to go before the Saints take the field, however.

Here are the most important dates on their calendar right now.

April 22
> NFL clubs with returning head coaches may begin offseason workout programs
Teams with new head coaches begin their workout program on April 15, but teams like the Saints with returning coaches begin a short time later. The NFL’s workout program has three phases: strength and conditioning and rehabilitation, individual player instruction and practices on a separates basis, and organized team activities, in May and June.

April 25 to 27
> The 2019 NFL Draft is held in Nashville, Tenn.
The Saints have come into their previous two drafts with some game changing players, including Alvin Kamara, Marshon Lattimore, and Ryan Ramczyk. Last year, the team drafted Marcus Davenport, a deal that will deprive them of a first round pick this year, but which netted them a very talented and promising player for the future. This year, the Draft will take place in Nashville, Tenn.

May 3 to 6, 10 to 13
> NFL clubs may elect to have one three day post-draft rookie minicamp
This is when the Saints are given an option to host a minicamp for rookies over three days in the month of May, either Friday through Sunday or Saturday through Monday, but they can only choose one of these options. The event gives first year players a chance to get acquainted with their NFL teams before the veterans come in for their own offseason conditioning.

This is a chance for rookies to get their first taste of the NFL life. This is also a shot for the Saints to host other undrafted players for a try out with the team.

May 21 to 23, May 28 to 30, June 3 to 6
> Organized Team Activities (OTAs)
This is the moment when things begin to heat up during the offseason, and a new chapter begins on the way to the actual season. Players finally take the field in helmets and practice jerseys, but the league, in concert with the rules laid down with the players union, is very strict in enforcing the rules of these practices: no live contact is permitted, but seven on seven, nine on seven, and 11 on 11 drills are allowed.

Teams are allowed a maximum of three OTA’s per week during the first two weeks, unless they want to hold a fourth workout under the stricter Phase 2 rules. After the second week, the maximum is increased to four OTA’s per week.

During this time, the foundation for a team is laid. Random players from all over the country turn into teammates. Rookies learn from veterans, and coaches start to cultivate a team identity.

June 2
> Post June 1 release designations take place
There is a salary cap difference in designating a player a pre- or post-June 1 release, and sometimes it is a substantial difference, making such decisions something of a strategic decision for NFL front offices. The Saints have not given any of their players this option, but they may keep an eye out on one who did get one from inside the NFC South. Atlanta plans to part ways with former offensive tackle Ryan Schraeder after June 1, and the Saints may at least do their due diligence on the player given some injury concerns at tackle over the last few seasons.

June 11 to 13
> The mandatory minicamp
Up until this date, everything that takes place on the practice field is voluntary. For those players who do not report for the mandatory minicamp, fines will be in order. The Saints are not expecting to find any of their players taking this route, however.

Practices are held from Tuesday to Thursday during the week of minicamp, but players report to the team’s workout facility for physicals the Monday before practices begin. Teams are allowed to hold two minicamp practices per day, so long as players are not on the field for more than three-and-a-half hours and the second practice session is limited to walk-through activities.

Mid July (Date TBD)
> NFL clubs open training camp for the 2019 season
This is the moment when the Saints meet at Ochsner Sports Performance Center in Metairie to finally get ready for the regular season. New players and coaches use training camp to get used to new teammates and systems, while for younger players it serves as a period of more detailed evaluation, and for veterans, a time to get back into physical form. The camp is also a time for players to take part in drills, meetings with positional coaches, meetings as a team, weight training, conditioning, and their preseason games. Fans are also given a chance to come by and watch the team take part in some of their practices.

August 31
> NFL teams must reduce their roster to a maximum of 53 players
In the recent past, the NFL allowed teams to cut their rosters from 90 players down to 75, and then from there, down to 53 in time for the regular season. Then, they changed the rule to make teams go straight from 90 to 53, while giving teams an extra two weeks to do their evaluations before making cuts. But on the final day of August, the Saints will have to consist of 53 players and no more.

Non vested players must go through a 24 hour waiver period, giving every other team a chance to sign them, depending on where they are in the current waiver order.

September 1
> Waiver period ends on final cutdowns
For those players who did not get claimed off the waiver wire, they become free agents. Teams are allowed to start signing players for their eventual 10 member practice squad, but these units change constantly throughout the season. A player can be taken off a practice squad at any time by another team, provided they sign them to the active roster.

September 5, 8 to 9
> The beginning of the 2019 NFL season
Finally, when everything actually begins and the New Orleans Saints take to the field in defense of their NFC South title and with their eyes on making another impactful postseason run. Though the team will largely resemble the group they fielded last season, the Saints will unfortunately be looking over their shoulder at the game officials to make sure they do not ruin another outing of theirs after what happened in the NFC Championship Game. New Orleans is favored to win the division and make the playoffs again in 2019.

> The playing of Super Bowl LIV in Miami, Fla.
The 54th edition of the National Football League’s championship event will kick off on the second day of February next year, and already the odds makers are liking the Saints’ chances to represent the NFC in this game, among the top four in football with 9/1 odds to hoist the Lombardi Trophy, and rank tops in the ESPN power ranking and No. 2 in the 247Sports rank.

re: Updated roster, cap #'s, & F.A. needs
quote:

I know that you said DT is not a need, but due to the beginning of the year injuries and possible suspensions, I wouldn’t mind resigning Davidson (for the right price).


The only way I can see us adding another DT (F.A. or 2nd round pick) is if we don't add another DE. Mario Edwards would could be listed as a DE in this scenario.

Rankins
Brown
Onyemata
Stallworth
F.A./2nd round pick

Jordan
Davenport
Hendrickson
Mario Edwards - pass rusher on the interior...run stopper at DE.

I can't see us going into to training camp with more than 9 highly likely locks on the D-Line. I guess it just depends on which positional addition gives us the best value combined with which position needs more help.
