21 million in dead money..if he doesn't retire his cap hit will be 40 to 50 million bc you still have to pay him 20+ mill to play if he doesn't retire

By not putting any additional years on the contract I’d say this is Drew’s last rodeo.

And if they pay Bridgewater it would have would have to be 5 or 6 million this year and close to 20 million next season if they expect Brees to retire just to get Bridgewater to stay over going to the dolphins.. so either way Brees stays another year with a cap hit between 40 and 50 mil a year or Bridgewater and dead cap hit of 40 to 50 mil

I always chuckle when people think Brees is taking a paycut.

Never has and never will. I don't begrudge him. As an NFL QB, his first contract with the Saints was well below market value so he's making up for it.

Or maybe, he bought more jewelery and is figuring out Jimmy John's sucks.

its way less a "drew thing" of not taking a pay cut and much more so a "how it is thing" of restructuring contracts.

Armstead and Cam are both candidates to also restructure if needed.

Chuckle all you want but Brady has done it several times to keep them competitive.. drews first contract was def under market value but he has definitely made up for that his last two contracts plus endorsements..I'm not surprised or upset that he didn't take a paycut it was just wishful thinking but to me if you know your only shot at winning a Superbowl with only one maybe two seasons left in your career you do what you need to do to get more talent around you. I would imagine Brees is smart with his money so I doubt him or his kids will ever have to worry about money

I am pretty sure that once a contract is signed Brees cant just say frick it only pay me 10 mil and use the rest on free agents. Its part of the union that he has to get paid somehow and not just outright take a pay cut.

You take a paycut by signing an extension to a small amount and if he retires you still get to spread that money out..one example is when brady signed a three contract extension for 27 million

So that’s $10M plus another $10M when the league cap goes up, correct?

Over the course of their careers Brady has made $1.5 mil per year less than Brees (money earned to date).

So it's not nothing, but way less of a discount than what all his nut huggers think.

And after this restructure they are likely what and what through the end of this year with money earned per year.

I'd have to look at what Brady's dead cap would be if he doesn't play next year to see how far apart they finish, but it won't be the great discount everyone claims.

Gisele has a net worth twice that of Tom Brady.

She retired and still made 10 million last year.

I really don't give a flying frick about anyone that wants to talk about Tom Brady giving up 30 million in "career discounts" when he's married to a woman worth 360 million.

And to further the discussion, its not that the patriots went out and spent a shite ton of this savings, they pocketed a lot of that shite and let many quality guys walk when it came to free agency.
