Exclamation Calvin Johnson's contract puts Saints in tough spot with Brees

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees should send Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson and agent Bus Cook a case of champagne.

Johnson and Cook just combined to give Brees and his agent, noted leverage-meister Tom Condon, all sorts of ammunition for their upcoming talks with the Saints. Thatís because in the spectrum of NFL contracts, it is extremely rare that a star quarterback is outranked in earnings by a player from any other position. Moreover, the difference in pay for elite quarterbacks is usually significant.

Well, I heard Johnson's contract wasn't front-loaded, so I do hope they take so pointers from his contract.
