METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints will create about $300,000 in salary-cap space when Drew Brees' retirement is officially processed after June 1.
That may not sound like much. But every bit helps for a Saints team that is essentially searching for cap space under couch cushions at this point.
The Saints currently have less than $1 million in cap space. They will eventually need to create nearly $2 million in space to sign their draft class. And they still have more roster holes to fill than usual at this late stage of the offseason.
