So Vilma & Smith are a lock to restructure their's?




Well it is either that or they are going to get cut. They need to decide if they want to gamble on free agency + what they get from getting cut

re: Brees willing to restructure contract


Knowing Brees counts against the cap at almost 30 mil in the next few years really scares me. Every time I can remember a player with that size cap hit and at that age, they end up cut for much less on the cap or the team is absolutely dreadful due to a lack of talent. I'm all for the win now mind set, but even if he were to restructure his current year cap hit, it only hurst us in the long run. I don't see Loomis touching Drew's contract unless it's absolutely necessary which from the way things look...it may just be.

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?

It's interesting how the most conservative, red state capitalists espouse freedom in every aspect of their lives except when it comes to their sports team. If I told you that the general public/government/other citzens should get to decide how much money a person needs to live on, most people get upset. Yet here we are, furious at Drew Brees and trying to tell him how much money he deserves to make. He's worth whatever his agent and Tom Benson signed him for.

re: Brees willing to restructure contract


Brees's situation isn't as big of a deal as some are making it out to be so long as the Saints are willing to suck for a year or two after he's done. They can just extend him into years that both sides know he won't be playing in, convert base salary over the next few years into signing bonuses that push guaranteed money into those "no way he plays" seasons, and just take a massive (say $20m) cap hit when they finally cut him. At that point they'll almost certainly have a QB on a cheap rookie contract that Drew has been mentoring, so you could just see it as paying our potential QB of the future Drew type money for a season in which we're probably going to suck anyway.

if they did, they would set a salary cap for each position and increase the salary cap all together.
