NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - With free agency mostly complete and the draft coming in two weeks, the Saints find themselves in a familiar financial position: right up against the salary cap.
According to the NFLPA, the Saints have $5.7 million in cap space after the contracts of Emmanuel Sanders and D.J. Swearinger were officially processed.
The Saints will need a significant amount of that remaining cap space to sign their draft class, which as of now, stands at five players. That could change, however, with potential trades on draft weekend.
