Cadet only received an $80,000 signing bonus on his one-year contract with the Saints, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The contract suggests Cadet may ultimately have to fight for a roster spot, though he looks like a lock when merely taking the current composition of the team into account. If the Saints do improve their backfield through the upcoming draft, Cadet might be left to compete with 2016 seventh-rounder Daniel Lasco and 2015 seventh-rounder Marcus Murphy for only one or two roster spots. Cadet does have a veteran's minimum cap benefit contract working in his favor, as part of his salary won't count against the Saints' cap space. Furthermore, the 28-year-old has a track record serving as a useful pass catcher for Drew Brees.
