Exactly what I'm worried about. We free up some room now, but will be paying a 39 year-old qb a ridiculous amount of money and eating up cap space. I appreciate the all-in move (especially with Brees' last good years), I just don't want to see us handcuff ourselves to a point where we have no room to make necessary moves.

IMO, this means that the draft will become ever more important to this franchise over the next half decade. We will need low-cost producers at other positions.

What team have you been following the last half a decade? The Saints under Loomis and Payton are the KINGS of low-cost, high reward producers, undrafted free agents, low picks, surprises, and guys passed over by other teams. Who the heck are are Pierre Thomas, Marques Colston, Chris Ivory, Jahri Evans, Carl Nicks, Jabari Greer, and Jimmy Freaking Graham???? They're nobodies that THE SAINTS found, and found for dirt CHEAP.

WE GOT THIS. Not worried. Not worried at all!

The cap is projected to explode after 2014 because of the new TV deal.

I know right. Can't we just be happy in the moment? This sure beats the hell out of having to hear about Bounties and all the doomsday predictions on Brees.

I'll worry about later, LATER!! Live'n in the moment right now!
