The Saints are still the tops, in cap overage that is!

Don't worry, "I Got This"!

Today the NFL has released the actual figures to each team for which they are over the cap. This number may come as a shock to you. The team was starting at being 22 million over the cap to begin with, and then they signed several players. Most notable are Luke McCown, Shayne Graham,and Parys Haralson as well as free agent tackle Ty Nsekhe. Also figuring into the higher camp numbers are player performance bonuses. Hard to believe that one isn't it? Yet the fact remains Akiem Hicks and Corey White both get them.

Several players have been signed to reserve futures contracts, but these should all be below the top 51 player level. I don't have all the numbers, but it looks like Mickey has even more work to do. The deadline for getting under the cap is on March 10th, by 4 PM Eastern time.
