Restructure what? You cannot restructure that beast of a contract. You just can't. He fricked himself teamwise and will play with mediocre to substandard teammates the rest of his career because of it.
Brees got what he was entitled to, in line with the market. It's ridiculous for you to expect anything otherwise. So Brees should be playing for league minimum? Hell, if Brees even took $10M a year, the NFLPA would be throwing his arse into an arbitration hearing. Brees is doing what every other player in sports, no- every other human being alive
- is doing: using his skill sets to make the most amount of money he can.
I love when fans want players to accept less. Do you think owners work this way? The Saints agreed to pay Will Smith an ungodly amount of money for the 2013 season. He hasn't performed so guess what- he gets cut. If Colston gets in a life-changing car wreck tomorrow- he gets cut. Why do we expect players not to do the same thing?
