It didn’t free up anything for the hundredth god damn time. Brees was always going to carry a dead cap charge of $22.6M ($11.3 in 2021 and 2022 if they spread it out). Saints are still $70M over the cap with very little moves they can make.

1. Cut Kwon saves $13.2M
2. Cut J. Jenkins and designate it as post June 1 saves $10.6M
3. Cut Emmanuel Sanders and designate it as post June 1 saves $8.5M

That’s still $38.4M over the cap without anymore obvious moves to make and still have Hendrickson, Marcus Williams, Sheldon Rankins and Jameis as UFA. And it pushed $17M of dead cap to 2022.
