It seems like something almost has to happen w/ Jahri Evans and his contract in next 24 hours, or there’s not room for Spiller.

New Orleans got newly acquired LB Dannell Ellerbe to agreed to a salary reduction on Friday to facilitate the trade with the Dolphins, but even that is unlikely to be enough savings to get them cap compliant, according to Woodberry.

Spotrac mentions that the Saints currently stand an estimate $3.7 million over the cap, without factoring in the specifics of LB Ramon Humber and Spiller’s new contracts.
