The Saints will solve the issue by making a few big moves as they change from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defense.

I could see the following cuts:

  • Will Smith $14.54
  • J. Vilma $8.68
  • Hawthorne $4.76
  • Chamberlain $1.45

On the fence moves could be:

  • Lofton $7.10
  • R. Harper $7.10
  • Greer $5.42

Restructures could be:

  • Brees $17.40
  • Evans $9.86
  • Colston $6.60
  • Moore $4.56

Loomis will find the money to get several critical players that he feels will fit the newer 3-4.

that's a ton of starters to have to replace.

Saints and Panthers in Trouble

we are in a bit better shape than I Thought

after Turner is Cut will put us at about 11 mil under

we will also need DRob and Clabo to restucture

of Our FA

only 2 that are a must sign are W Moore and S Baker

alot of ppl say our biggest FA need is DE

but its not, we will be going to a 3-4 base, in that base Package , Babs and Beer are more than Solid ends. bring abe in in the Nickle and we are Fine...

what we do need is a LB or 2

amazed that lofton is even a consideration.

At this point, every player needs to be evaluated for the scheme. I think he and Grubbs were good signings from last year. I see them looking elsewhere to balance.

Smith is gone simply because he's a 4-3 DE and on the downside. Doesn't help that his cap savings would almost half the overspending with just one move.

Babs and Beer are more than Solid ends.

Babs? Yes. Biermann? I don't know if I can agree with that. A good defensive in in a 3-4 usually plays around 280+. Biermann is a measly 250-260ish, last I checked. He'd get thrown around on running plays and wouldn't even command a double team, ever. So on passing plays, that leaves the guard open for picking up LBs. Not a great matchup.

I'm not buying a 3-4 switch unless we're able to do some major front seven renovation. We have a few DT's that might be able to play DE in a 3-4 but we'd need three starter-caliber linebackers, at least one of whom being a major pass rusher.

Man Seeing Lofton getting cut would be HILARIOUS to me.

How much will those cuts actually save?

We also have a couple easy cuts to make to free up a good chunk of change.

Cutting Turner and Drob frees up between 10 and 13 million between the 2.

With guys like Blalock, Clabo and Roddy all restucter/extenstion possibilities aswell.

My hope is we roll into FA with 20ish mill in FA
