Saints restructure Brees' contract to open cap space
The New Orleans Saints opened up some cap space.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Saints restructured Drew Brees' contract to clear $10.8 million in salary cap space, per a source informed of the move.

Brees will still get the $23 million in cash he's due in 2019, but the simple restructure will push the cap figure to 2020, freeing up space to use now.

The Saints were set to have just $4.987 million in cap space before the contract maneuver. New Orleans needs the space as they hope to re-sign backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, pursue tight end Jared Cook, and host pass rusher Ziggy Ansah on a visit.
