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.

Re: 2013 Saints - Free Agency Targets

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.
