Not even a good troll headline.  Sorry, subby, most people interested in sports are familiar with guys having their contracts restructured to fit under a salary cap.  Doesn't mean they'll make less, they'll just make it in a different way.  Like changing a reporting bonus, which is an immediate cap hit, into a signing bonus, which is prorated over the term of the contract.   Fail tag is for subby.

Ah so the new scheme doesn't involve cheating then?

He may make less. A lot of players at his age wind up getting cut before the end of the renegotiated contract. It's the cut-throat world of the NFL, where a team can cut you and you get only guaranteed money or you take the pay cut and hope you don't get cut completely.

Actually Vilma isn't being asked to restructure his deal as you claim, indicating that you think the subby is a failure. The Saints have told Vilma take a pay cut or get cut. They are not restructuring his contract they are reducing the contract or Vilma gets cut. Fail is for you not quite grasping the situation yet still thinking that you know the answer.

Vilma will get cut and so will Will Smith because neither is going to agree to what the Saints are asking. Also Drew Brees, Jari Evans and Roman Harper might be approached about restructuring their deals to help out the Saints cap space this year.

Odd, that's not how ESPN is reporting it.  I suppose, if I fail, I'm in good company.  All hail subby, who clearly knows better.

ESPN simply reported that the Saints want Vilma and Smith to restructure their contracts.  That could mean what you indicated earlier or it could be a Michael Vick type pay cut restructuring.  Considering that both are over 30, I'm leaning towards the latter.

If they cut Vilma, the Vikes should make a run at him. Jasper Brinkely is not exatly a top level MLB.

/hey, if could get in bed with the the FavreDevil himself, you think I couldn't get over Bountygate?

Last year the Saints had the worst defense ever in the history of the NFL. They can probably do at least that well with other players if these wont restructure.

go ahead and cut them, the Titans will take 'em especially them picking up their old coordinator

Only aints fans with their irrational hatred of Roger, still care about it, the rest of us can see they farked up and deserved some kind of punishment but bring this subject up on ESPN and you get them coming out of the shadows saying they were set up because other teams didn't like them winning.

He can always make it back through performance bonuses. Perhaps the coaching staff could figure out a program to incentivize the players.

You know what, you guys are asking for way too many things. I don;t have the time to follow your instructions at this point.

Sorry.
