In addition, guard Andrus Peat also restructured his contract with the team to free up $7.8 million in salary space. The New Orleans Saints’ cap space is now about $42 million below the projected cap for next season ($202.8 million).

The $14.6 million in Michael Thomas’ contract (salary plus roster bonus) was converted into a signing bonus that could be spread evenly over the next few years. This also shows that the New Orleans Saints have no intention of trading him, because after the transaction, the $14.6 million will be directly included in this year’s cap space.
New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis previously made it clear that the change of coach from Sean Payton to Dennis Allen does not mean the team will begin a rebuilding process. He believes the team still has the strength to compete for the top spot in the NL South and is likely to spend a lot of money in this year’s quarterback market.

In addition, rookie defensive end Payton Turner was previously added to the injured reserve list due to a shoulder injury, and safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson has also been confirmed to be absent.

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton said Alvin Kamara won’t be out for too long, but it’s still a big loss for the offense. Previously, wide receiver Michael Thomas and quarterback Jameis Winston were both out for the season due to injuries.

The New Orleans Saints are currently averaging 314.6 yards per game, ranking only 28th in the league, and second-to-last in passing offense (191.6 yards per game). Alvin Kamara averaged 66.25 rushing yards per game, 38.75 receiving yards per game, and 7 touchdowns, ranking first in the team.

Veteran running back Mark Ingram is expected to replace Alvin Kamara, who is just 19 yards short of breaking the franchise record (6,096 yards).
