I'd be more concerned if we had mad cap room. Why don't they ever do stories on that topic and the losers who have it.

You are correct. I forgot about that.

Re: Saints dealing with major jump in Drew Brees’ cap number

I have no doubt Drew will be willing to extend the deal. I am sure he will. But the issue is that a simple renegotiation isn't feasible because there aren't any future years to push money back. So, what will happen is they will work a new deal and move current money to signing bonus. I'm guessing they add three years to deal. The issue will be Drew and the Saints deciding what the base salaries will be in those years and how much of it is guaranteed. My guess is Drew will seek something averaging 20-22 million over those years- the Saints will likely want that more in the 15-18 range.

Give him 30mil signing bonus. That was Brady's "paycut" lol

Re: Saints dealing with major jump in Drew Brees’ cap number

He's due 38 million over the next two years, so that's the starting point on any guaranteed money for him. And he's probably going to want at least 20 million on any new years. So adding 3 years at 20 a piece, means an extension would have to be 5/98 with more than 38 million guaranteed. Either way, the Saints will be pushing money into future years.

Probably will be fine as long as Brees continues to play at a high level.

Great guy. Great QB. But, he's not going to be giving the Saints a discount.

Me either. But, if Petty is there in the third, I hope the Saints take him. With Coach Sean, Petty can win now in a pinch and can definitely be the QB of the future. As far as the cap, the Saints need to HIT in round 1 with a playmaker on defense.
