Even with a lower salary cap this year, the New Orleans Saints’ situation stood out as particularly dire to get compliant. Drew Brees did them a favor before he retired, lowering his cap hit for 2021 notably. Somehow, the Saints got it done and are now in a pretty good spot cap-wise. The Saints have a wide range of possible outcomes for the 2021 season, from a relative bottoming out (6-10?) to remaining a good team with a possible deep playoff run in the cards. Regardless, adding some young, cheap talent in the draft will be important for now and going forward.
