He won't make near that much in 2011, and he knows it.

Is anyone else here thinking what I have been thinking lately. I've been thinking about this whole thing where free agency is now going to be compressed from its usual five or six months into, what did they say it would be, the whole signing thing is now going to be about twenty minutes long or so, LOL. It will be a mad dash. And I think this could actually help the Saints, because they can just have guys on speed dial, with offers ready, boom boom boom. And players -- especially non-superstar, lower echelon players -- are not going to really be able to drag their feet, or wait around and mull things over, or "test the waters" or play the "I got to feed my family" card. Free agency is going to be so fast and furious this year, it's gonna be like, if the Saints are on the line with an offer, you almost have to either TAKE IT or LEAVE IT in the space of just a few days or weeks. Not a lot of room to haggle. Agents are not gonna be able to shop players around quite AS MUCH as they might be able to, in a whole long off season. So if free agency becomes a mad scramble, with all teams racing against the clock, this might actually help the Saints KEEP guys rather than lose them.

Or it could backfire completely and go the other way, I don't know.

In Loomis I trust!
