Wow, you've got to be kidding me.  At least we can see who is serious about upgrading their LB corps.

hm. They can't possibly be intent on using him as a starter over Lofton AND Tatupu?

This space for rent....*sigh* I trusted you coach.

If a player like Vilma isn't cut, then gets suspended, does he still count against the cap??

I believe so, as long as its not a year long suspension.  Also, it looks like draft or bust for us for any linebackers.

Falcons signed Tatupu.  Lofton will be MIKE, and Hawthorne will be OLB, likely WILL.  They have Martez Wilson grooming for SAM.

You may be right but I don't understand how that makes sense.  How does a player that is suspended w/o pay, have a salary that is counted against the cap?

I think the base salary of a suspended player is taken off the salary cap

Suspended players don't count versus the game for the number of games they're suspended. Like, if you're suspended for 4 games, you'll only count on the salary cap for 75% of your cap numbers.

@ProFootballTalk 
Saint agree to five year deal with LB David Hawthorne per league source.

Am I missing something here??

I saw that too...that's some Bull... How the heck do they have the cap to sign these players...

They get a great OG to replace their great OG that left..resign their best WR. Then sign a good Run stuffer DT. Then trun around and sign the 2nd and 3rd beat LB in FA.

This is not fair..why does their GM got to wait to.the start of the season, he should be already suspended..so the Saints can't sign no one..they dont.care  about their picks, they don't draft good aways,, most their hits are in FA, and late rounds or undrafted players...

The Saint even with out their coach, is gonna be great, and their D is gonna be alot better, then last year.

They will have to cut players and restructure some existing contracts so they are not paying guys much this year.  Man this really has to be pissing off Brees.
