Reports: Saints restructure deals with Ramczyk, Lutz
The Saints moved closer to getting under the salary cap for the start of the 2023 NFL league year by adjusting the contracts of tackle Ryan Ramczyk and kicker Wil Lutz.
According to NFL Media’s Tom Pellissero and ESPN’s Field Yates, the Saints converted nearly $13 million of Ramczyk’s 2023 salary into a bonus, creating more than $10.3 million in cap space.

According to Spotrac, the Saints were more $44.6 million over the 2023 cap before the moves, so the New Orleans front office still needs to create more than $32 million in space.
