Locked On Saints - Daily Podcast On The New Orleans Saints show

Summary: After the New Orleans Saints made the tough, but expected, cuts of Kwon Alexander and Emmanuel Sanders, their cap situation drastically improved as they also learned the NFL Salary Cap would be $182.5M in 2021. How much money the Saints freed up, and why Kwon's story in the Big Easy might not be done. New Orleans also restructured the contracts of Andrus Peat and Malcolm Jenkins opening up another nearly $10M. How the restructures helped, but felt more like a need than a want. New Orleans was also awarded three compensatory picks, which picks they were granted, and where they select throughout the draft for now. Ranking the top three salary cap moves left for New Orleans. The list tops off with a move that not only frees up cap space, but builds toward a bright future. Mickey Loomis and Khai Harley continue to work their magic as the New Orleans Saints bulldoze their expected salary cap woes.
