Potential Cap Causalities
Jason Fitzgerald has a great article up at The Sporting News that takes a look at some notable players who could be cap causalities this offseason.
According to Fitzgerald, some names to watch include:
- Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald
- Texans WR Andre Johnson
- Vikings RB Adrian Peterson
- Rams QB Sam Bradford
- Chiefs OLB Tamba Hali
- Saints WR Marques Colston
- Rams OT Jake Long
- Saints G Jahri Evans
- 49ers OLB Ahmad Brooks
- Dolphins LB Dannell Ellerbe
Demovsky adds that if the Packers are going to make their decision based purely off the tape, “there’s little reason to think they would not want Bulaga back.“
However, Bulaga has been placed on season-ending injured reserve twice since entering the league, so there are some injury concerns with him.
Larry Holder of The Times-Picayune writes that the Saints firing DC Rob Ryan may not be “as concrete as you’d think.”
Holder mentions that parting ways with Ryan would force the Saints to hire their fourth defensive coordinator in five seasons, and Ryan actually has a great deal of support from the players in the locker room.
