lets see blow it up? tank the year and stock pile picks to go after conner cook in 2016? ok

Lofton, Evens and Colston are to simple to redo to just cut them loss

Re: No Renegotiation for Brees

We aren't blowing up squat. We have more talent on this team than any in Saints history. We have a Superbowl QB with 2 or 3 more solid years left in the tank, and we're likely a top 3 NFC contender as is.

As long as Brees is still playing, we swing for the fences.

Re: No Renegotiation for Brees

Im with Danno
I understand getting value for Brees while you can but if you get rid of him you get rid of everyone and eat the cap hits at once.

With the ownership issues up in the air this team will be swinging for the going for broke now.

Im not sure that once Brees hangs up the cleats we are not looking for a new Coach and GM too

I guarantee you Sean Payton is leaving when Drew retires/goes elsewhere.

This is very likely.

Re: No Renegotiation for Brees

I am going to repeat something that I have stated many times ...

... any kind of restructuring of a contract for cap purposes will always, ALWAYS, ALWAYS favor the player.

Given the expected cap growth over the next two years (no less than $143M 2015 and likely well over $150M in 2016) there is no reason to restructure Brees' contract, especially at this time. Loomis isn't stupid. It makes no sense to do a restructure unless that was the last resort. That isn't the case this year. You don't do restructures just for the sake of doing them. We need to try to stop trying to read anything more into it than that. Brees isn't going anywhere anytime soon. I expect at least a new contract following the 2016 season with a chance for an extension following this coming season.

Re: No Renegotiation for Brees

This sounds like a reloading of talent year for the Saints to then have one last championship run before Drew retires, hope I'm wrong but I wouldn't be surprised its another 7-9, 8-8 season. Now if Payton somehow recovers his balls then all bets are off

Maybe his ex wife got them in the pre-nup agreement.

If they don't draft or pick up a qb for the future this year I am jumping on your bandwagon.

That means all the naysayers are right they we won't contend and will have to watch Atlanta threaten to go to another sb. Its gonna hurt really hard on here if they get a ring.
