Per The Spun...
quote:

Jason Fitzgerald of Over The Cap was first to report the news of Brees’ restructured contract on Friday night. It’s a move that’ll free up nearly $24 million in cap space for the Saints.

New Orleans is expected to be roughly $90 million over the projected salary cap for the new league year, so Brees’ renegotiated deal will help bring that number down dramatically. He’ll hold a cap charge of $12.25 million until June 1, which then drops to $11.15 million if he officially retires from the NFL. That being said, the legendary quarterback would still have a $11.5 million cap charge the following year.

So, what does this mean for Brees’ future with the Saints? Well, the writing is on the wall with the move. Though he hasn’t officially retired just yet, the fact that he restructured his contract to this magnitude lets you know at where his mind is at.

You miserable fricks. He’s a fricking football player, you shouldn’t care a single bit at all about anything other than his ability to throw a football. Y’all don’t even realize y’all are giving these idiots the platform by caring so much about that shite. I couldn’t give a frick about his opinions but he was great for us. Saints football was fun and we’re gonna suck arse again real soon. It’s like y’all would rather Trubisky than one of the Goats as long as he doesn’t kneel which literally affects no part of your sorry arse life.

Then aren't you giving these "miserable fricks" a platform by caring so much about what they say about Brees? If you don't give a single frick about Brees's opinions, why do you care about posters on a message board?

Shoulda done the Saints a solid and signed for the vet minimum given he knew he wasn't coming back this year from the beginning but then the Saints should have signed him to a 1 year deal
