Saints News, 3/21/16: Saints Find Themselves Up Against the Cap Again

New, comments

After signing Coby Fleener, James Laurainitis and Nate Stupar, the Saints find themselves with the lowest amount of cap space in the league. Their free agency was also graded a "D" by nfl.com, since despite being relatively quiet they still find themselves under money constraints (pending the Drew Brees extension so many are discussing).
