Cutting Gamble gives us $7.9M in cap space
DWill as a June 1st cut gives us $4.75M

Putting us $9,024,932 under the cap


These moves also give us an extra $11.4M in cap space for 2014 while restructuring would do the opposite (increase their cap hits for future years).

Nah. We have to be under the cap with our current roster (top 51) by next week.

Then we will also have to be under again when the final roster is set in August.

The Saint's have the least amount of cap space, but they have a few contracts that are easier to work around then Carolina. Just doing a new deal with Smith will push them under the cap and they have plenty of contracts they can move around some.


I'd still say Carolina is in the worst cap spot this season. Yea they have Gamble to cut, but that's about it. They could wait till June 1st for Williams and save 5 million in cap space, but that doesn't help a whole lot right now.

i think the saints are in worse shape, mainly because they have so many players that need to be re-signed in the next year or two.

this year the biggest deal is jermon bushrod...but they are also up against the wall because their center hits FA this year as well so they have to secure their LT and OC...which won't be inexpensive.

they've got several other "issues" to deal with in re-signing guys and dealing with players who are getting a pretty significant upward tick contractually this year, but they've also got to face the reality that jimmy graham is heading into the last year of his contract and despite being their best/most reliable/most targeted receiver, is only scheduled to make just under $1.5mill (iirc). he's looking at other predominately pass catching TEs who are getting/demanding WR contract treatment so they've got to work out something with him soon. i've heard rumors that he might hold out this year, and i can't say i wouldn't blame him...in fact i encourage it (mainly because it would screw with the saints).

and then they are looking at their defense which was the worst ever. you've got to know that they are wanting to upgrade everywhere. so far all they've done is change DCs but that's essentially putting lipstick on a piglet.

they need more help than we do and have more people to sign with barely more space than we have. they might be able to re-sign a few key people, but they won't be able to do much to upgrade that defense in FA and they don't have a 2nd round pick to help out this year so there's more pressure on them to use FA.

given a choice between the two contract situations...i'd rather have ours.

Its almost a curse to have an elite QB. Giving up 1/6th of your cap annually to 1/53 of your roster results in significant holes elsewhere.

I agree somewhat, but then I think about future years. The Saints have their QB signed long term, Carolina doesn't. Plus Carolina has Hardy (going to get a massive deal similar to CJ) and Newton coming up in the next few years with horrible cap numbers.

The saint's made a move the other day by restructuring Brinkley that put them at 2.9 million over the cap, If the Saints cut Vilma, Smith and Herring and they are 12 million under the cap.

March 12th is the first date in the NFL Calendar that requires teams to be under the cap. It's for the top 51 players on the team.

Don't understand. Kept seeing Dallas was way, way over, even last week I saw a report they were $26M over. I know they restructured Ware and a couple of other moves but stuff like that and what Philly did, I just don't get.

yes, they'll save cap money...but those will be additional holes that need to be filled and the money they make available for the cap from cutting those guys will have to go towards LT and OC. they won't have much money left over for other re-signings, draft picks, and FA.
