Saints News, 2/25/15: NFLPA Says Saints Must Spend More Cash Over Next Two Seasons

New, comments

From Nola.com: The New Orleans Saints have the worst salary cap situation in the NFL, sitting about $23 million over the projected 2015 cap of $143 million. However, in pure cash spending, the Saints are among the teams that are under the spending threshold, according to the NFLPA. Each team must spend at least 89 percent in cash of the allotted salary cap over a four-year period between 2013-16. The Saints have spent 86.25 percent of that money. A team that sits among the top of the salary cap isn't necessarily a top spender in terms of cash flow. But that doesn't mean the team isn't spending money. A team such as the Saints can have several players with low cash values by giving them a signing bonus up front, then prorating it over the life of the contract for salary cap purposes.
