found this at bleacher report regarding Jimmy Graham..

 

"It will be interesting to see if the Saints can get far enough under the cap to re-sign or franchise him. They are roughly $10 million over the proposed cap heading into the offseason, though they have some options to shed salary."

 

 

if that's true, they'll be cutting a good bit.  Don't see them letting him get away, at any cost.  But as bad as it looks for us, at least we're under the cap.

There's speculation that if they try to tag him, he'll want the WR tag to get more money

They can get rid of Will Smith and drop a lot of cap. I'm sure they'll find a way.

It eventually catches up to most good teams

That's partly why the steelers suck now. But you have to pay to be in the dance this late in the season

I came into the thread expecting to see how much better off the Aints were than us regarding cap. Good surprise.

I wouldn't want to see that assbag in blue and black, especially after that taunting bullshit he pulled against us in the last game.

even if they get rid of Will Smith, Harper, and Greer, they'll still only have about 6 mil in cap space.  Brees will probably have to restructure, as would Colston and Lewis.

The cap is a joke and is easy to manipulate. When has a good player ever been let go because of the cap; it is usually dead weight that gets let go and GMs can easily restructure contracts if they want.

I'll bet you any amount of money Graham isn't going anywhere, neither is Hardy, at least not next year.
