New Orleans Saints News:
Tyrann Mathieu and Demario Davis both made Pro Football Focus’ top players of 2022.
While the Arziona Cardinals reportedly wanted to trade for Sean Payton, but Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill says that the Saints wanted too much in return.
Kristopher Knox of Bleacher Report names Tyler Huntley as the dream Saints trade for the 2023 offseason.
The Saints have reportedly restructed their contract with Ryan Ramczyk, converting almost $13 million into a signing bonus.
In addition to Ryan Ramczyk, the Saints also reworked contracts with Erik McCoy and Wil Lutz, creating $8 million in cap space and $1.5 million respectively.
Following the restructure of Ryan Ramczyk’s and Wil Lutz’s contracts, the Saints are “about $35.5 million” over the salary cap.

The #Saints did a conversion on RT Ryan Ramczyk’s contract, clearing another $10.336 million in 2023 salary cap space.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) February 23, 2023
That Lutz's re-worked deal wasn't a restructure means the #Saints didn't commit to further guarantees in order to open up a little salary cap relief.— Ross Jackson (@RossJacksonNOLA) February 23, 2023
Means New Orleans could still push for competition at kicker during camp without risk of a greater dead cap hit.
