Yep. The problem is that they pay their special teams players the most in the league and they spend the least in the league on defense and the second least in the league on offense.Tbh, Janakowski and Lechler are the best at their craft and have won them more games than they have lost.
It wont be that difficult. After parting ways with Will Smith and Vilma alone we'll be under the cap. Then shedding some salaries by releasing guys like Chamberlain, Jenkins, Dave Thomas, Herring and a few others we can get around $10 million under. If we drop Harper we could free up another $3-4 million.Didn't realize Bushrod had a 6+ mill cap hit this past season. This site is great I wish it had the 2013-14 cap numbers. We can assume Sed Ellis' 7 mill is coming off the books, and I know that the team would probably like to retain Bushrod, but how much do they pay him?
Loomis is going to have to work some magic this offseason... he's going to earn that new contract in this offseason alone. Can't wait to see him do his thing and flip those numbers to get us under the cap, and hopefully get us into a position where we may be able to sign a couple guys that can help us.

Saints are a middle of the road team as far as total salary, and are very balanced when comparing defense and offense.
I guess you can look at it any way you want. I tend to look at it like they spend about 6 million more than everybody else for players that see less than a dozen plays combined a game. I would give that money to a couple player that play 40 snaps a game. That would have a bigger impact than kickers.Tbh, Janakowski and Lechler are the best at their craft and have won them more games than they have lost.
