Injustices should only be addressed when someone perceives they are on the receiving end. :/
I don't seem to remember another offer on the table, so the $10 million per year was a top of the market rate. Also, at $20 million, he's had less success. So I would argue that stats and no ring is less valuable than no stats and one ring. Therefore he had been grossly overpaid for the last 3 years.

It's just math. Ain't no thaing.

Memory.... Not fairing you well is it?
Perhaps you did partake in a little clockwork orange over seas.
Drew has only just finished the second year of his new contract, comeback in another year for 3 years. This is the first year under his new contract with a head coach for preseason.

10/year was a top of what market rate xan? Your telling me Saints paid prime value for a QB with a questionable shoulder that one teams physician just laid a nogo on?

If you want to hang a SB on value then Drew Brees is the only one we have ever have and all others were over paid.

If your not hanging a SB on "success" or "value" then what are you going off of?

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.
