It was no secret that the Saints were running into a cap space issue this offseason, especially with Drew Brees knocking on the door of retirement. With many big name players across the NFL potentially on the move, the Saints freeing up all of this space could result in a new star or two playing in the Big Easy.
The New Orleans Saints front office will continue to work diligently throughout the offseason in hopes that strategic efforts in the next few months will pay-off come next season when the playoffs roll back around.
