Ok, let's look at the tag another way. I'm not sure exactly how the amout applied to salary caps works but I would assume with the tag at say 14.5 million all of that would apply to the cap since it is a one year deal. How much of a 90 or 100 million deal would count against the cap this year? Maybe Drew will accept the tag to allow enough cap space to sign the other guys. What do you guys think?

I don't know if it could be any less with Brees' side reportedly wanting a front-loaded contract, which would place a lot of the guaranteed money on the initial years of the contract.

It would depend on the actual base salary and the designated portions of any bonuses included in the contract.

I've said this before, he's got another child on the way. That could really make him look at life differently. Priorities.

Really? 90 Million (plus another 20-30 million) isn't enough for a family of four?

To be the highest paid employee in your professiopn in the entire world isn't adequate?

What exactly are his priorities? Dictatorship? World dominance? Liberal Politician?

Again, what is the difference between 18 million and 23 million dollars?

Smart@$$ answer of 5 million aside - I'd rather have 18 million and make sure my best receiver and lineman are still on my team along with some help on defense so I can win one, maybe two more championships...
