Looking at the Saints’ contracts on Spotrac, it’s going to be hard for them to shed enough cap space simply to get back over the cap again. That being said, the franchise continues to find ways to work around their financial issues so I’m not doubting them by any means.
It’ll be really important for New Orleans to figure something out with their cap issues so that they can make a run at one of the big-name quarterbacks potentially hitting the trade block.
When diving into these contracts, there are two that really stand out and ones that New Orleans probably wishes they could have another shot at doing or not doing, rather.
Neither of these names should surprise anyone because it’s pretty common knowledge that they’re bad contracts and those players haven’t lived up to the hype. Let’s take a look at these two players’ contracts and discuss how NOLA made a mistake in giving these two players these deals and making it more difficult to climb out of cap hell.
