New Orleans Saints
It was reported after the contract restructures by Jonathan Vilma and Will Smith just prior to the offseason starting that the Saints were somewhere around $8.5 million under the salary cap. Enough room to add some talent but likely not make a massive splash in free agency. Since then, the Saints have signed Justin Drescher, Keenan Lewis, Ramon Humber, Ben Watson, Will Herring and Courtney Roby. Many of these contracts are undisclosed, but it's safe to assume each of the four returning Saints players had salaries around or less than $1 million. I'm going to say they count $3 million against the cap collectively. Ben Watson signed a 3 years $3.15 million deal with 950k going against cap in year one, while Keenan Lewis will count $2.25 against the cap in year one. That means the Saints have spent roughly $6.2 million against the cap up to this point for 2013 and by my math that means that have about $2.3 million worth of cap space left for 2013. That should be enough to, at th...

Thomas Morstead had a simple identity. He was an NFL player with hair down to his shoulders so that he looked like he could have been playing bass in a Scandanavian metal band.
But the New Orleans Saints punter found a cause, and on Saturday had it all cut off in order to raise money for a children's cancer charity called the St. Baldrick's Foundation. Morstead got the...

Hot News for WR Courtney Roby
We all thought that the Pittsburgh Steelers top priority this offseason would have to be re-signing unrestricted free agent CB Keenan Lewis. Obviously that wasn’t the case as Lewis signed a five year contract with the New Orleans Saints and Lewis said his farewell to Steelers’ fans on twitter via Dave Bryan of Steelersdepot.com. According to Lewis, the Steelers never offered...
We reported over the weekend that free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is still trying to decided whether he’s going to sign with the Saints or 49ers.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Saints are “pushing hard” to sign Asomugha.
The Saints secondary got torched by opposing offenses last year and clearly believe Asomugha can help them out despite his poor play...
This week I will be breaking down the Saints needs (in my opinion) and where they stand as far as the draft goes. The Saints have lost a few people to free agency, but those people are not irreplaceable. The worst one was definitely the Kromer/Bushrod to the Bears combination. A solid left tackle going to another team, along with a good offensive line coach. I think the Saints...
