According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New Orleans Saints will ask both linebacker Jonathan Vilma and defensive end Will Smith to restructure their contracts. The Saints are currently $16 million over the cap.  Smith’s cap number is over $14 million and Vilma’s is over $8 million for the 2013 season. If the Saints aren’t able to restructure Vilma and Smith’s contracts, they will likely be released.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
