  Saints | Brodrick Bunkley released    Tue Jul 28, 05:36 PM

New Orleans Saints DT Brodrick Bunkley (undisclosed) was released with a failed physical designation Tuesday, July 28.

Footballguys view: Bunkley tore his quad late last year, and he's still recovering from that injury. Once healthy, the 31-year old run-stuffer should get some interest.

  Saints | Brodrick Bunkley restructures contract    Wed Apr 9, 03:53 PM

New Orleans Saints DT Brodrick Bunkley has agreed to restructure his contract, which will create $2.85 million in salary cap space. His 2014 salary has gone from $4.5 million to $1.65 million. He is still scheduled to make $4.4 million in 2015 and 2016.

  Saints | Lance Moore, Brodrick Bunkley could be cut    Sat Dec 28, 09:11 PM

The New Orleans Saints could release WR Lance Moore and DT Brodrick Bunkley this offseason in order to create some salary cap space. Moore is scheduled to make $3.8 million in 2014 while Bunkley is scheduled to make $4.5 million.

Footballguys view: If Moore is a goner, then Kenny Stills should get a shot to play a much larger role in 2014. The team compared Stills to Moore, and he also adds a deep game element that Moore does not. Moore hasn't been as uncoverable over the middle or crafty after the catch this year, so it will be hard to justify paying him that salary next season.

  Saints | Brodrick Bunkley to miss time    Wed Sep 11, 01:22 PM

New Orleans Saints DT Brodrick Bunkley (calf) is expected to miss several weeks because of a calf injury. Bunkley is expected to return at some point during the season.

Footballguys view: The Saints have absolutely been hammered by injuries on the defensive side of the ball. Will Smith, Victor Butler and Kenyon Coleman have already been lost for the season and Jonathan Vilma is on IR designated to return. Without Bunkley in the lineup we'll see rookie John Jenkins in the middle of the line.

  Saints | Two linemen injured against Atlanta    Mon Sep 9, 02:34 AM

New Orleans Saints DL Brodrick Bunkley (leg) and Tyrunn Walker (leg) left New Orleans' regular-season opener Sunday, Sept. 8, against the Atlanta Falcons with leg injuries. Team officials listed both as questionable to return at the time. Bunkley injured his right leg when he appeared to be tangled up on a short running play. Shortly before the half ended, Walker got caught in a pile and appeared to hurt his left knee as teammate Junior Galette sacked Falcons QB Matt Ryan.

  Saints | Brodrick Bunkley signed    Wed Mar 21, 01:59 PM

The New Orleans Saints have signed free-agent DT Brodrick Bunkley (Broncos) to a five-year deal worth $25 million. The deal also includes $9 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: The Broncos will sorely miss Bunkley's run-stopping ability. The Saints certainly needed help in that department after Aubrayo Franklin didn't do much as a free agent signing last year.
