Also interesting to note that as many speculated, Smith and Vilma were offered deals that would be a pay cut, not just deals where they would get their money up front and have it spread over the cap in later years.

Once again Colston being a team player, Loomis just being Loomis
Well, he is a team player, but you don't have to be much of a team player to say, yeah, I'll take $4.5 million now instead of having to wait to get it in the form of game checks over 16 weeks starting in August.

Colston needs to give a little back after his dropsies and fumbles last year. Thank goodness Jimmy Graham covered that fumble in OT in the Dallas game.

Now we just need to cut Smith, Vilma, and Harper, and get new blood in there that can help us during our 5 year window.

Per source, Marques Colston's new deal creates $2.1 million in cap space for the Saints. Details coming at PFT.

What exactly is Colston giving back?

I'd be stunned if we've offered Vilma or Smith much more than what their respective cap charges would be if we were to cut them.

Strange how Tom Brady gets a shrine built for doing the same thing and for more money
