Another Brees contract thread. New idea.
 
Ok, instead of frontloading the first 3 years of his contract and causing all of these difficult decisions Mickey has to make, can another option be that we can just guarantee him the salary he wants no matter what.

I'm not an expert on contract negotiations, so excuse my ignorance if that is not an option, but think about it. We could say, no matter what happens in lets say a 5 year deal you will get the total ammount of money that you want spread out through out your entire contract.

I know this brings up the issue of what if he gets hurt and other circumstances but I believe the man deserves it. Spreading the money out could help the cap and also get Brees what he ultimately wants no matter what happens.

What are your thoughts?

That is a precedent that NO ONE is willing to set.

It's would also be an unbelievably bad business decision.

The bottom line is: If New Orleans doesn't pay Brees, he doesn't get paid.

Financially, sitting out is not a bad positon for Brees. He'd get the contract he wants and in a bigger market, that's more endorsements and a bigger pool for his foundation (non profits keeps 80% of the loot). The Saints would probably just trade him to save face. He also gets to side step all the scandal.

There really is not much to negotiate. I honestly believe he does not want to be in a Saints uniform despite what he says. There is a much bigger picture than just the contract. The way I see it, Loomis would have to offer him the sweetest deal imagineable just to keep him and nobody gets the upper hand on Loomis. At this point I would be shocked if he is playing for the Saints next season.

I want to hit the like button, but I'm too terrified of your scenario to be able to accept it.

I think Jerry Jones and Brees already have a contract laid out. I would also bet that Payton is right behind him.
