Fletcher's gonna re-sign with the Skins. It's just a matter of time.

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

Salary yes. Pro rated bonus still counts vs. the cap.

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.

The Saints are improved against the run, but who is going to cover the TE.  I wanted Lofton because I thought he was the best FA, but he is an above average player and nothing special.

Saints are trying to make positive news to offset the PR disaster they are going through , which is why they keep signing people. All this patchwork signing of one dimensional lb'ers that no one else even wanted isn't going to make thier defense significantly better. Thier pass defense has actually gotten worse - bad news in a passing league.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

Good signing by the Saints. They went from total dog crap at LB to pretty good in a week. I hope the Bucs know what they're doing with the total dog crap they have at LB.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Saw a segment on NFL network yesterday essentially saying that the Falcons, Panthers and Saints are all so low on cap room that they'll have to make cuts to sign drafted players.

I think this says the Saints already know what the suspensions are going to be and are already making moves to protect themselves.

As much as it pains me to say it, I think the Saints have had a tremendous off-season in talent acquisition. It will be interesting to see the suspensions....because that may be the only thing keeping them from 13-3 again.

That and the fact that they've used up all thier available cap room and still haven't res-signed Drew Brees yet...

Hawthorne has played well outside in Seattle before Tatupu started sucking.  Another good signing for NO, as much as some folks want to bury their head in the sand about it.

I'm fine that they are going all in for a championship. On a year that their coach is suspended all year. The cap space is gonna make things tough going forward.
