    In moves that have been anticipated for months, New Orleans Saints defensive end Will Smith and linebacker Jonathan Vilma restructured their contracts to remain with the Saints in 2013, according to a source. The moves were essential for the Saints to slide under the $123 million salary cap by Tuesday's 3 p.m. deadline.

    Smith's salary cap number would have been $14.5 million in 2013 with a $9 million base salary included. Vilma originally held an $8.6 million cap figure this season, including a $4.8 million base salary. It's unclear how much of a pay cut was taken by each player, but the restructures do place the Saints under the cap.
