New Orleans Saints' Drew Brees on potential contract restructuring: 'Whatever I can do to help this team'

Now if we can get some other players to do this as well!

Brees said the Saints haven't approached him about restructuring his contract to relieve the team's cap troubles. Brees is well aware the Saints have several decisions coming with potential unrestricted free agents such as tight end Jimmy Graham, offensive tackle Zach Strief, safety Malcolm Jenkins and center Brian de la Puente to name a few.

When asked if he would be open to restructuring his contract if the Saints asked, Brees said, "Whatever I can do to help this team, if they want to come to me and extend me even further, that'd be great.

"Listen, there are so many possibilities as to what can happen here. Let's just let this offseason start. It's what, today's the second day of it unfortunately. We all wish it wasn't, but whatever helps this team win and puts the best team on the field."

Brees said he feels every team is under constraints and there's plenty of time for the Saints to sort out their salary cap issues before the start of free agency March 11.

"As far as our team, I know that our team is going to spend whatever they ... I don't think ours has, ever since I've been here been, in a situation where they're not going to do what they feel like they need in order to field the next team," Brees said. "So within cap constraints with whatever they feel like they need to do, for me, I signed a six-year ($60 million) deal when I first got here. I'm two years into a five-year deal ($100 million) and hopefully I can play that out and sign another deal and continue to play this game even longer.

"Listen, I get compensated very well. I don't take that for granted for one second. But I play this game because I love this game, I love this locker room and I love the opportunity to win a championship."

Thats what we all want to hear

Brees restructures
Vilma, Smith should definitely be gone (if harper wont restructure him too)
Our cap situation would look a little better straight away

Weren't the Giants interested in trading for Roman Harper a few years ago?

Wonder if there's still any interest on their part?

Dunno, they have about 4 cents in their cap after the cash Manning gets.
