League sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen on Wednesday that the NFL is working with the players' association to come up with salary-cap concessions for the Saints.

The franchise is concerned about losing its own free agents and being unattractive to free agents from other NFL teams because of the uncertainty of where it will play games.

To help, the NFL is considering salary-cap concessions that will allow the Saints to have somewhat of a financial advantage over other NFL clubs given the disadvantage the club faces because of its uncertain location.
