The Saints had to maneuver to give themselves enough room to sign linebacker Curtis Lofton, who agreed to terms with the team on Saturday.
Moore's cap figure fell from $4.3 million to $2.9 million, and Robinson's figure dropped from $2.9 million to $2.06 million.
Both players took reduced base salaries as part of the moves, but were given signing bonuses spread throughout the duration of their contracts.
