Gronkowski contract = good news for Graham
 
So we get a preview ofnext year's drama

Gronkowski gets $54 over 6 years. Graham will be in that neighborhood, or not in our neighborhood anymore

Brees Contract = Bad news for Jimmy

TheOak 06-09-2012 07:21 AM

Exactly what I thought when I heard it... We are going to be hurting next year.

Brees + Jimmy = Bad News for some non producing and injury prone players.

I think we all knew that when Jimmy's contract came up he would be looking at around $50 million for a 6 year contract. Brees's contract was always going to hurt us with any cap room whatsoever but at the end of next year we have serious decisions to make re some other massive earners on defence.

Do we really want to be paying Vilma what we pay him? Assume he misses the season. He's got a duff knee. And he is that much older. I'd cut him right now and pay Jimmy frankly! Then there is Will Smith who is paid an astronomical amount to be a mediocre player in my opinion. We either start freeing up cap space this season and plan for Jimmy or we'll be letting him go. I want him to stay. Brees and Graham is as good or better than Brady and Gronk.

My thinking too. Good news for Graham. Bad news for the cap strapped Saints.

Oh, don't worry. I'm sure we'll re-sign him early like we ALWAYS do with our most valuable players ...

PAY THE MAN!!! Oh wait, we can't, because we have to PAY THE OTHER MAN!:argue:

This is exactly why I typically side with Loomis on negotiations, and why Condon can go screw himself.

Did anyone think Loomis wasn't looking forward to Graham's monster contract? Thats why Loomis didn't want all that Brees money front-loaded. It'll prevent us from signing players like Graham.

Loomis is the man. If there was a man I wanna pay, its Loomis.
