Saints work towards clearing salary cap space continues as the team restructures the deal of one of the franchise's greatest players.

By Bob Rose - Saints News Network | SI

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports that the New Orleans Saints and DE Cameron Jordan have agreed to a restructured contract. He's the most recent player to be restructured by the team in an effort to get under the salary cap before the start of free agency on March 13. Since last week, the Saints have also restructured the deals of QB Derek Carr, C Erik McCoy, G Cesar Ruiz, and DT Nathan Shepherd.

Restructuring Jordan will create around $9 million in cap space, according to Nick Underhill and Mike Triplett of This deal leaves New Orleans at between $14 and $16 million over the salary cap.

Jordan, who turns 35 on July 10, has played all of his 13 NFL seasons with the Saints. He was the 24th pick in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Cal. Son of six-time Pro Bowl TE Steve Jordan of the Minnesota Vikings, Cam would go on to make an even bigger mark in the league than his father.

After a quiet rookie year of one sack and two tackles for loss, Jordan developed into one of the greatest players in franchise history. He'd go on to be the all-time franchise leader with 117.5 sacks, earning eight Pro Bowl honors along the way. ...

Johnny Manziel throws his support behind Reggie Bush's Heisman Trophy fight

This is big of Johnny Manziel: the former Heisman Trophy winner and Texas A&M quarterback announced Saturday that he will decline to participate in the award’s annual ceremony until Reggie Bush has had his own Heisman Trophy returned to him.

Bush, the former New Orleans Saints running back, won the trophy for his efforts at USC back in 2005. But it was taken away from him after an NCAA investigation found that his family had received recruiting benefits which were not allowed at the time — and which are now popular across the college sports landscape with the legality of NIL programs...

There isn't much history of NFL teams trading down from the 14th pick

If there’s ever been a year for Mickey Loomis to break his streak of NFL drafts without a trade down (dating back to 2007!), it’s this one: the New Orleans Saints are getting perilously older at multiple positions and they’re short on draft picks. Restocking the roster is going to be tough with just two picks in the top four rounds.

At the same time, the 2024 draft class is remarkably top-heavy. A historically small class of underclassmen declaring has winnowed the talent available in the later rounds, where the Saints expect to have most of their selections once compensatory draft picks...

We’re just a few weeks away from the start of free agency, and the New Orleans Saints have a couple of players who could hit the open market — including several starters and some ascending backups hoping for larger roles in 2024.

But could the Saints get priced out of their services? Different outlets have projected market values for some of New Orleans’ pending free agents, so let’s take a look at the numbers from Pro Football Focus, Spotrac, and Over The Cap:

Alontae Taylor says he won't be replacing Marcus Maye at safety

The New Orleans Saints secondary will look different this season with the team intending on releasing starting free safety Marcus Maye when free agency begins in a few weeks. Could another position switch be on the way for cornerback Alontae Taylor, who moved to the slot for the first time in 2023?

Don’t bet on it. Taylor shot down the idea of learning another new position in 2024 in response to fans on social media, who were discussing the notion of playing him at free safety in the wake of Maye’s departure. Whether he primarily covers the slot or moves back outside, he wants to be...

Chase Young identified as a the solution to Saints' pass rush woes

Defensive end is one of the biggest concerns for the New Orleans Saints as they’re currently constructed. Despite drafting Payton Turner and Isaiah Foskey with top-40 picks in 2021 and 2023, the pass rush remains at the bottom of the league. There were 27 teams with more sacks last season than the Saints defense.

The issue should be addressed this offseason either in free agency or the upcoming 2024 NFL draft. Veteran options will be available sooner, and the Saints aren’t known for their patience, so that’s where we’ll start looking. ESPN’s Aaron Schatz identified former San Francisco...

NFL is considering moving to an electronic first down system in 2025

In the 2025 season, the NFL could be measuring first downs electronically. This initiative is in its infancy, but the NFL is currently gauging how interested teams would be in implementing an electronic system. If the teams are interested, you could be saying goodbye to 10-yard metal chains as soon as 2025.

This electronic system’s usage would include first downs, sidelines and goal lines. In theory, this should provide a more accurate determination of if a player reached the line to gain for first downs and touchdowns. That same certainty should extend to reviewing a player possibly...

Derek Carr's deal deal listed among the NFL's worst contracts

Derek Carr underperformed in his debut season with the New Orleans Saints, struggling to hit his stride until the last third of the season — at which point it was too little, too late. The team is hoping for a faster start in 2024 after hiring a new offensive coaching staff aimed at putting Carr in a position to succeed.

Still, his underwhelming first year in New Orleans can’t be overlooked. In response, Bleacher Report’s Brad Gagnon called Carr’s contract one of the worst in the NFL after the disappointing year.

It was frustrating to watch Carr in 2023 at times, but his contract is not...

After the first day of the NFL Combine, we saw one player take over the combine, and we saw many players outperform their projected draft positions. This is one of the most important days for the New Orleans Saints scouts and staff to pay attention to, and the good news is that it did not disappoint.

Looking at each position group, three players stood out over the rest and showed that they must be drafted higher than previously projected.

After day one, it was evident that one player took over the combine, and his name was Braden Fiske. The Defensive tackle from Florida State had himself...

NFL Scouting Combine player preview: Florida

After a 5 win season, the Florida Gators will send just two players to the NFL Scouting Combine in 2024. These players being wide receiver Ricky Pearsall and center Kingsley Eguakun. The New Orleans Saints have had a good track record drafting Gators recently, as the last two they have taken were Chauncey Gardner-Johnson and Alex Anzalone, two solid players who were perhaps cut free too soon. The two players from Florida at the combine this year are unlikely to be taken in the first round, so the Saints will not have to do much maneuvering if they take a liking to either of them.

As the 2024 NFL Draft inches closer by the day, I thought it would be the perfect time to have a little bit of fun before all of the mayhem to come in these next few weeks.

With all of the rumors surrounding the Chicago Bears and whether or not they will choose to stay put at #1 overall or choose to move off of their selection, I decided to put my GM shoes on to see what it would take for the New Orleans Saints to make a move up to that #1 spot.

After a short conversation with one of my colleagues, I want to share some of the discussions we had and the thought process in deciding what...
