As excited as I am, that $60 mil guaranteed IS an astronomically high number.

I love Drew as much as anybody, but I hope we didn't just shackle our financial flexibility to a QB who will be 39 in the final year of his contract.

CAP HITS...

2012 10.2 million (3m base + 37/5 = 7.2m signing bonus)
2013 17.2 million
2014 18.2 million
2015 26.2 million
2016 27.2 million

Mayb so, but the talent Drew will attract (and retain) during his tenure here is not measurable.

Finally. 3 years to get to the Superbowl again, and
then it is back to restructuring and trying to get out the cellar of the NFC South.

One would hope. However, Drew can't retain players unless he wants to defer his salary to them. His contract means it will be very challenging to afford people. Fortunately we have most of our core players already signed long term, so that's good.

Just FYI, we freed up over 6 million in cap space for this year.

Anybody wanna do some shopping? DE's, DT's? Maybe another LB, WR or CB?

5 years 100 mil 60 guaranteed. Don't understand what the hold up was. Deals can always be restructured and guaranteed money can always be spread out later to accommodate future FA's.

Glad this process if finally over with. Now we can start talking about some real football.

Loomis may be the best hire in the history of this franchise. Seriously.
