In 2014, he'll earn a $1 million base salary and $1 million roster bonus.

In 2015, he'll earn a $2 million base salary and $2.5 million roster bonus.

That is really good news!

I was hoping for a contract with an annual average of $4M, so this is a very pleasant surprise.

Very nice!

Great job by Loomis!

Also have to appreciate these players for being willing to work with the Saints to allow us to afford them, because if not for that, it wouldn't have mattered how smart Loomis is. That shows me something, that these guys really want to come here and win, instead of complaining about having to defer salary. These are very good players we've signed in Grubbs, Bunkley, Lofton, Hawthorne and re-signing Colston... But taking less money to win makes me feel even better about them.

Good news, now lets get Drew done.

Loomis wrote up this deal, of course it would be cap friendly it's what Loomis does best, I'm hoping somehow that Drew's contract pays him what he deserves but doesnt screw the team's cap number in years to come

Walterfootball.com re-evaluation of the signing of Hawthorne after financial details have been released:

Quote:

Saints sign ILB David Hawthorne (5 years, $19.5M; $3.8M guaranteed): A+ Grade

This deal is unbelievable for the Saints. David Hawthorne is a really talented linebacker, yet the Saints were able to get him for just $3.8 million guaranteed. Furthermore, this contract is really cap-friendly, so if Hawthorne sucks for some reason, they can dump him after the season without much of a penalty.

so FinSaint, who do you think is the better MLB between Lofton and Hawthorne? I know they both can play where needed...
