It appears that the New Orleans Saints will might be willing to part ways with left tackle Jermon Bushrod. Bushrod is set to be an unrestricted free agent this off-season and the Saints might just let him walk. The Saints are going through salary cap restrictions for the second straight off-season and the team might not have the money to pay Bushrod.

The Saints are restructuring many contracts and signing exclusive rights free agents as the team tries to get under the salary cap. Bushrod was once thought to be a top priority for the Saints this off-season but now it appears the Saints are more concerned with staying under the salary cap.

As one of the better left tackles in the NFL Bushrod could easily demand a contract in the $5-$8 million per year range and the Saints really cannot afford to pay him that. Even with the Saints’ current salary issues there is another reason why Bushrod is no longer a top priority with the Saints.
