Re: Should Drew Play for Less $$ ?

The man played his way into his contract. He "should" play for less if he "wants" to play for less, and not for any other reason, and people who bash him for his contract need to slow their roll, in my opinion. I know if I'm in his shoes I squeeze every drop I can.

I thought his contract was going to cripple us but look at New England...
they seem to make it work. I'd even be willing to say they have far less talent than us
peers yes, but Brady's deal is different:

Tom Brady's new deal guarantees him up to $57 million from Patriots

maybe it's the millionaire wife

Last year I would have agreed with you, this year I am working on finesse.

Experience in life teaches a person that getting it right is more important than getting it their way.

Not sure what Brittany is worth...
maybe if Benson puts a few Jimmy Johns in the dome Drew can sacrifice a buck or two

Re: Should Drew Play for Less $$ ?

I am a brazilian fan of the Saints, and as a brazilian I also have a soccer team which I am a fan in my city, it is named Mineiro.

Here we have a few famous players such as Ronaldinho and he is a guy that sacrificed a salary of 12millions dollars for playing in our team and making "only" 3,5milllions. Just like him I can mention a few other players that did the same for playing in our team and the reason for that is because they love the fans, the city and there are things which are just priceless. Brees is a guy that gave so much for New Orleans, not just the Saints, but lets not forget he also got a lot from the fans.

There is no doubt he deserves making this kind of Money due to his game, but, if he wants to get a better shot for winning the superbowl and giving the city of New Orleans this gift, he must take a paycut. I couldnt disagree more on the idea that taking a 7 millions paycut when you already make 20 millions is a big deal.

Does he deserve the Money? Yes. Does he really need to get payed this high? No.

Re: Should Drew Play for Less $$ ?

Boutte your poll is a little lop sided. Should he have signed for less and not crippled the team? Maybe. But, he can not take a pay cut now.....too much going on with his contract to even touch it until next year.
