Re: Saints QB Brees willing to adjust contract

Do not confuse "willing to adjust" with taking less money. Brees, as does virtually every player that restructures a contract, will still get every penny of the guaranteed terms of his contract. In addition, he will get additional guaranteed monies along with an extension. The key is that the additional years will allow the team to prorate that guaranteed money over a greater length of time thus lowering the cap hit, especially if it becomes more back-loaded.

This will give the Saints better flexibility to work out the necessary deal with Jimmy Graham.

It had no doubt that Brees would restructure. It is a great personal financial decision and benefits the team in the short term.

Tired of getting hit, Drew? Need more time to throw?

Re: Saints QB Brees willing to adjust contract

"willing to adjust" with taking less money how will that work? i Guess Benson is going to shell millions upfront and/or tear up the contract and do a new one

i am not sure how this all works under the new collective bargaining agreement, from the bits and piece i have read it is not as easy as it use to be. especially this early into a new contract

any insights out there?

Re: Saints QB Brees willing to adjust contract

I thought Drew's contract was front loaded.
Meaning majority of the money was due in the first 3 years, after that it was less??

Re: Saints QB Brees willing to adjust contract

Someone posted earlier that it would need to be a new deal completely. Now that he is two years older, my guess is that this one would be heavily front-loaded

It was explained to me that the reason the contract was backloaded was in anticipation of the salary cap increases expected from the latest TV contract and called out for in the players CBA. The increase in salary in years 4 and 5 will be (hopefully) offset by increases in the cap.
