Question for the Forum
If Vilma is ultimately suspended for the league, will the money saved be enough to get the Brees contract signed?

No; seriously I have no clue, guess it depends how far apart they are now; with Vilma's money that's only another 2-3 million

I read with the re-structuring of some other player's contracts the Saints did the gap was closing.

I don't want to lose Vilma, but if the choice is either Brees or Vilma, he will come in a poor second!

No it won't be enough. But what's really important about it is that now that the suspensions have been formalized, Loomis can complete the rest of his roster and then work together with Condon to form a deal that both parties can live with. It's mainly just a huge roadblock to getting the deal done, that has been lifted. Put it this way: you want to buy groceries, and you want to get some fancy expensive steak from the butcher counter, too, while you're at the store (the steak is Drew Brees). You can't know how much you can spend on the steak, until you know how much money you have in total, and until you know how much you need to spend on the other groceries you need. THEN once you know your budget you can go to the butcher counter and get your fancy steaks.

One way or another Brees signing soon is very important to how this season will turn out. We need the confidence that his leadership will be available right now.
