The NFL is about to change.
The practices, games, broadcasts, interviews -- all of it will be different. The best we can hope for is that, with all the oddities, everything remains recognizable enough that a return to normalcy won’t ever feel too far off no matter how weird things become.
But there won’t be a quick fix to the financial situation, which will either result in one massive hit or a cap that remains flat for several years. This obstacle will need to be navigated by all teams, and especially ones like the Saints, who manage the salary cap with the idea that it will increase each year.
So, how does New Orleans find its way out of this situation? Glad you asked.
