Seattle drafted Unger in the second round in 2009, where he went on to receive All-Pro honors in 2012 in addition to earning Pro Bowl nods in 2012 and 2013. Unger was also a part of Seattle’s 2013 Super Bowl-winning team.
Yates also noted Unger had one year left on his current contract with the Saints, and Pro Football Talk writes that New Orleans would have owed him $8.7 million in salary this upcoming year. On the flip side, the Saints save $6.95 million in cap space with Unger’s departure.
