    I'm not sure his 5th yr option is guaranteed at this point except for injury. I believe his becomes guaranteed on the 1st day of the league yr. I believe part of the new CBA does guarantee the salaries at the time the option is signed, but that is just for guys drafted in 2018 and later.

    I think the best thing JRob could do would be to try re-work Butler's contract along with Byard's. Use that money to sign King....

    Why on earth would we re sign Jonnu Smith? Firkser and Pruitt can easily match his production.

    Butler was a pro bowl level player this year. Saffold was too. You want to cut them so we can resign non pro bowl level players. Brilliant!

    Those two players give us the biggest cap savings and are overpaid.

    These are the positions that need to be addressed as we do not have a starter under contract at them. If we go with your plan, there will be very little money to address them:

    • Starting WR
    • Starting TE
    • 2 starting DL
    • Starting OLB/Edge
    • Starting ILB
    • Kicker
    You want to fill those positions with low value FA and rookies, then we get worse next year

    Id like to keep Jonnu but Firkser was just as valuable.

    King needs re-signed, like to keep J Brown as well.

    Can we restructure Adoree? He's not worth 10 mil either.

    I want someone to explain to me how Saints have managed to run a team with negative 95mil cap space? How the hell does that happen? What kind of crazy advantage does that give them to have an extra 100mil to spend on salaries that other teams dont have? Isnt the entire reason the NFL has to approve contracts is so a team doesnt get to have an extra 100mil in salary?

    I see. I thought it basically meant a guaranteed contract.

    Have we had any situation where a team extended the option and later released the player?

    The Titans will be fine and be a very good team next season.

    The Colts need a QB, all of them. They don’t have a QB under contract at this moment. Their starting LT just retired. A lot of the Colts top players are UFA this off season. So they have decisions to make. They aren’t exactly in a great spot, regardless of how much ones they have. The Jags are in compete rebuild with a rookie QB. I’ll worry about them in 2 years.

    For a team with questions marks on D you absolutely can not cut butler after the year he had

    NONE of our secondary should be cut. We have a good secondary. We had a horrible DL. NO pass rush at all. The greatest secondary in the history of the NFL would have looked horrible with our pass rush this season. Our secondary did a pretty good job having to cover for 5 seconds on every play. Get a pass rush and they look very good. I don’t know why most of you don’t understand that a secondary is only as good as the pressure applied to the QB.
