Well, they’ve done even more.
According to a league source, guard Jahri Evans has restructured his contract to free up $3.12 million in cap space. The Saints gave Evans a $4.16 signing bonus up front, but dropped his base salary from $7.2 million to $3.04 million.
Evans had been scheduled to have a $9.86 million cap figure. But the restructure drops that figure to $6.74 million.
