Saints bring Brodrick Bunkley back at a reduced rate

Divisional Playoffs - New Orleans Saints v Seattle Seahawks Getty Images

Early this offseason, the Saints cut a bunch of veteran defensive players to get them off the books.

Others are getting pay cuts.

According to Katherine Terrell of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley restructured his contract to create $2.85 million in salary cap space.

His salary this year went from $4.5 million to $1.65 million, including a $300,000 roster bonus. His base salaries in 2015 and 2016 stayed the same.

The 30-year-old is a solid rotational defensive tackle, but wasn’t going to last long at his old numbers.

    I remember Adam Caplan and Mark Schlereth after the 2006 NFL Draft both saying that Brodrick Bunkley had much better potential and was overall significantly better prospect then Haloti Ngata, who was underachiever and at best, decent rotational player.

    Something to keep in mind as we listen to hours of pre and post draft analysis.

    Bunkley is a very, very good nose tackle. In fact I would say probably one of the top 5 or 6 in the game. Saints are wise to keep him.
