It is that time of the offseason where not much is coming out about each NFL team, but when it comes to the New Orleans Saints there sure is a lot to talk about.

Today we will look at some info about Tom Benson and the serious cap situation the Saints find themselves in at the moment.

 

Tom Benson is the Most Influential Figure in N.O. History

Per ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas:

Saints owner Tom Benson came in at No. 1 on the Times-Picayune’s list of the 25 most influential sports figures for the fifth straight year. Can’t argue that one since Benson has the market pretty much cornered as he also owns the NBA’s Pelicans. Coach Sean Payton and quarterback Drew Brees also are very high on the list.

 

Saints Cap Room Check 

Per ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas:

 The New Orleans Saints are $5.17 million under the cap. That’s the lowest figure in the division. But the Saints might not be done yet. They still could look to add a pass-rusher after losing linebacker Victor Butler to injury during the offseason program.
