Kyle Wilson will not count much against the salary cap.
The defensive back signed a one-year deal with the Saints that carries a base salary of $765,000 and a signing bonus of $80,000, according to a source. The signing bonus is the only guaranteed portion of the contract.
The deal qualifies for the veteran minimum benefit, which means his cap figure will be $680,000.
Players qualify for the veteran minimum benefit when they have four or more years of experience, sign for the minimum and do not have bonus money that exceeds $80,000.
