8 million dollars
Need 10 guys
Do the math
The Saints had $2 million after starting $15mil over the cap and still managed to tag Graham and bring in arguably the best free agent on the market with a contract over $50mil.
I have never been a pessimistic fan when it came to this franchise but I have also never seen a team, one that previously went 12-4, put so little around their franchise QB and gut the entire offense. After last season we were a couple to a few pieces away from taking the next step. Now we are 6-8 pieces away from even attempting to field a competitive team with rookies and cast-offs bottom of the barrel free agents.
