He said whatever helps the team. A 2 year 2M dollar extension helps the team.

No. The whole point of restructuring is to give short-term cap relief to the team and long-term security to the player. That's why these deals get done. Brees will get a two year extension with more guaranteed money. Some of that money will be paid via a signing bonus and prorated over the entire new term of the restructured contract, while other agreed upon base numbers would be shifted toward the back-end.

He's going to restructure but its better to do it after the 2014-15 season. This upcoming season he costs us $18/mill, next season $26 Mill. It will be better to do such after next season.

Meaning majority of the money was due in the first 3 years, after that it was less??

He did get the majority of the money, however that was in bonus and low salary the first two years. The remaining escalates in salary.

Remember his contract freed up cap space in 2012.

Re: Saints QB Brees willing to adjust contract

He has 3 years left, a new deal would look something like adding 10M to what he is already owed on his present contract but turning those 3 years into 6.

Re: Saints QB Brees willing to adjust contract

Thx Guido, Oak, and WhoDatFan26 for explaining that.

I used to have a lot of respect for Brees....



BUT NOW I EVEN HAVE MORE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Still, taking all he was signed for, but later is a good move for all.
