Saints likely dumped Bobby McCray to avoid $1.25 million roster bonus

Why did the Saints cut defensive end Bobby McCray on June 21? In only 10 days, they owed him a $1.25 million roster bonus.

Per a league source, the team did not attempt to negotiate any reduction to the contract or delay in the bonus. Instead, they simply dumped him.

Said McCray on the matter, per WWL-TV: “I’m speechless.”

And so the Saints won’t owe him the $1.25 million roster bonus or a $2 million base salary in 2010.

So much for the uncapped year.
