Brees' contract is set up beautifully. Very front loaded.
Not even close to frontloaded. His $37m signing bonus is spread out evenly per year. His base salary goes:
That's what's pissing me off most about sitting on almost $7m in cap space this season. If they don't end up using it to extend someone like Graham or Bushrod this year, it will be wasted. We should have given him an extra $5m this season and knocked off $2.5m in each of 2014/2015. 2016 doesn't really matter since he'll probably get extended a few years.
