Both of them are all-time greats individually, but I think they realize that they aren't going to ever be better than when they are playing together.

Think it shows that the players want to stay together and keep a good thing going. They are showing their support for Brees.

This is great news but lets not make it seem like Jahri is taking a pay cut. This restructuring just means he's making more guaranteed money, like what Eli just did. Players like Jahri LOVE when a teams comes to them to restructure.

I do like how we are getting creative with the cap to free up space for some of our other free agents. Lets now use this space and get some guys signed!

Very encouraging seeing Evans accept a restructure, even thought it didn't free up a whole lot of cap, but every little counts in this situation.

Very true, but the fact remains we're clearing cap room. Obviously we need a carrot to convince players to restructure. I'm sure Loomis isn't giving away the farm to lower this year's cap.

I'm sure there are some restructures where players take a paycut, but the alternative may be their release and very few options of increasing their pay.

But you are correct, I'm sure Jahri got some financial incentives to restructure.
