I don't think he's posting this for
Loomis.

Im just saying...every year we freak out about "what is Loomis going to do?!!"

He might not be a "football guy" but the man knows how to maximize the cap. Probably the best at it.

Wow, that sucks for the Jets. At least we're in a place to compete.

As for us, there's no way Drew is going to renegotiate so early, and I think it would be a big mistake to start restructuring already. If we start kicking the can too soon, he's going to eat up a full half of our cap in the final year of that contract, which would be detrimental to the team even if he isn't on it at that point.

FWIW, the numbers likely aren't static. There are going to be a few cap casualties, cuts and restructures that will alter the current numbers quite a bit. Vilma and Smith (among others) are likely candidates for restructuring if they want to continue to play for the Saints.

Will Smith is a lock to be cut imo. Restructuring is not enough.

Vilma is in the final year of his contract, so he cannot be restructured. Restructuring Will Smith would take his cap hit in 2014 to close to 20 million dollars...we can't keep kicking the can with these players.

I think Loomis did well last year, he signed five players that were good acquisitions including replacing Carl Nicks with the best possible FA and he resigned Brees and Colston. Sure we lost a few players that happens every year though.

People worry too much about the cap situation. It's almost like March is the NFL's Halloween and Mickey Loomis becomes Dr Sam Loomis and the salary cap is Michael Myers!!

The one thing I don't understand is the other bonus section. Is that guaranteed in all cases, or are some of them roster bonuses and such that can be shaved off if the player is cut?

Either way, as much as I love Will Smith, I think he's done with the Saints.
