Saints now have just under $5 million in cap space for 2014

After the Jimmy Graham contract the Saints’ cap room stands are just under $5 million in space. That’s because while Graham’s deal is for $13 million in year one, a lot of that is bonus money which prorates over the life of the deal against the cap.

Deal between the New Orleans Saints and Jimmy Graham is fair & wise

It was far from a surprise that the New Orleans Saints announced a new long-term deal for franchised tight end Jimmy Graham on Tuesday—beating the NFL-imposed 3 PM CT deadline for completing such a deal. The four year/$40 million deal meets the expected $10 million/year number that was rumored ever since the Saints won Graham’s franchise tag appeal last month. As noted by the...
