Byrd (knee) is a few weeks away from being at full strength after suffering a season-ending meniscus tear in his knee last year, FOX Sports reports. "He's doing well," head coach Sean Payton said. "His rehab is on schedule. He'll be cleared for minicamp. We're looking at about two or three weeks from him being 100 percent."
Bush is a potential salary-cap casualty this offseason, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports, as the Saints would save nearly $2 million by cutting him. Bush is recovering from a fractured tibia that placed him on season-ending IR in November.
Evans (wrist) had surgery last month on a partially-torn ligament in his wrist which kept him out of the Pro Bowl. He is expected to be fully recovered in time for offseason workouts and the start of organized team activities in May, ESPN.com reports.
Although the Saints must trim somewhere between $20 million and $30 million in salary-cap space, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com believes that the Saints will find a way to keep Colston in New Orleans for a 10th season by working out a pay cut with him. The 31-year-old Colston is due $7 million in salary and bonuses in 2015, plus another $7.8 million in 2016.
