Colston restructures his contract

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He won't make the HOF in my opinion. His numbers are great but no hope of the HOF if he can't even get the respect of a probowl....

Re: Colston restructures his contract

If he continues to put up the numbers he has been putting up, and they manage to win one or two more Super Bowls with him on the roster and making a difference on the field - he'll be in the HOF or at least on the ballot.

What this all tells me is that we have no idea of the personal relationships between the GM and the players. Looms obviously has a nose for which players are willing to restructure.

Can't wait for next season. The off season soap opera is too much for me.

You can't make 10-12 year olds understand that possesion recievers are more important than the 60-80 yard bomb catchs that make those recievers more espn top plays of the day heros in there eyes.

Mickey must love these defensive players if he's not even asking them to restructure.

Every single player wants a restructure, because when base salary is turned into a prorated signing bonus - the player immediately gets that bonus on his bank account.

They're not getting pay cuts, but a big part of their future salary is being paid to them right now instead of waiting for it and possibly never getting all of it, since not all base salary is guaranteed.

Re: Colston restructures his contract

Wish I could get some of that up front money. I'd probably retire.

You can always ask your employer for an advance... it's basically the same thing.

I really hope just cutting Will Smith would cost less than keeping him around, IMO he's one of the major reasons why some of the younger guys aren't getting playing time
Once again, y'all have to realize that these guys don't do this out of the kindness of their hearts. A restructure almost always means more guaranteed salary over the life of the deal.
