Saints To Ask Vilma And Smith To Restructure Their Deals

The Saints will ask linebacker Jonathan Vilma and defensive end Will Smith, two players embroiled in the bounty scandal, to restructure their contracts, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Smith is due $10.15 million for 2013, while Vilma is owed $6 million in the final year of his deal.

If the players are unwilling to restructure, they could be cap casualties.

As of Friday, the Saints were about $13.5 million over the salary cap, but that was before linebacker Curtis Lofton restructured his contract. The Saints must be below the cap by March 12.
