    According to nfl.com, the Saints were attempting a sign-and-trade to bring in Clowney. They speculate that the other team involved was the Browns, who have tons of salary cap room and a willingness to be creative in their roster moves. The deal they were trying would have involved the Browns signing Clowney to a 1-year, $15 million deal that included a $5 million signing bonus. Once signed, they would have traded him to the Saints for a second round pick and a player to be named later. The Saints would then have only been on the hook for Clowney's $10 million salary, and gotten another salary off the books in the process.

    The NFL said such a move was illegal and nixed it. Clooney signed with Tennessee

    Yall didn't think Goodell would let the saints come out ahead in any deal did ya. Plus we have a white qb with a guilt tour who probably suggested it.

    @fanatic on the same page.

    City of New Orleans says no fans in the Dome for week 3 game vs Green Bay. So stupid.
