Most of his contract was guaranteed...

Be interesting to see what happens with Bushrod now.
Giants have re-signs Beatty for 5 years at $38.5(clauses 19ml guaranteed)

Beatty’s contract is worth $37.5 million — and up to $38.75 million, with incentives — including $19 million fully guaranteed and a $12.5 million signing bonus, according to a person with knowledge of the terms of the deal. That person requested anonymity because the Giants do not disclose contract specifics.



So around $7.5ml per year in cap space.Do we end up paying Bushrod similar and try to keep the line intact or look to a lower priced vet or the draft.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Bushrod probably thinks he deserves more than Beatty, since he is a Pro Bowler and a perennial starter at LT, but who knows..?

$7.5M would probably be as high as I'd like to see them go if they plan on re-signing Bushrod; I'm not saying he wouldn't be worth more in relative terms, but higher than that and I think the Saints are better of seeking an alternative.

That's a good question!

The Saints would probably offer much of the contract in the way of signing bonus while backloading much of the base salary, so they'd probably give a hefty handful of cash immediately to the player they signed with.

...and that's another reason why I'd like them to seek a cheaper alternative to Bushrod, since the Saints already have enough of backloaded contracts on their books - especially with the recent restructures.

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

With our limited draft picks and needs at both Tackles, and the investment in Brees, Colston, et al - I can't seen how we don't sign at least one tackle - trick is do they pony up for Bushrod or pay more for a better Tackle?

Me too. The guys seems to be very versatile & is also a hellava blocker.
