I personally don't want to see you on your back over and over and over next year. Help them get you some protection.
You have it backwards. Restructuring is the team's last resort. Every restructure helps the player and hurts the franchise. There is little doubt that Brees' agent is begging Loomis for a restructure (which in Brees' case would be an extension), but it is not in the best longterm interest of the team. At least not this year.

For all the media wailing over long term cap hell this team is in a good position cap wise next year. If the big under performing earner are cut we would have holes to fill but would have over $35ml in cap space.

If Colston,Grubbs,Hawthorne,Lofton and Bunkley got cut next summer(if they dont this) then we have $37ml in free cap room and thats with Brees cap hit of $27ml and Evans $10.2.
But Its should be said that Hick,Jordan,Lelito and K.Robinson are all out of contract too.

This is very true, we have to weather the storm this year, but we have to be careful how much we push forward because that could just keep perpetuating the inevitable. At some point we need to feel the pain for one year so that the future is clear.

We don't know if this is Drew's final contract, who's to say he doesn't retire after the length of this deal is done and that's why they haven't added years

Brees recently stated that he intends to keep playing long enough for all of his children to have seen him play and understand what is going on. He said that would be well into his 40's. He has no plans whatsoever to retire. I fully expect him to get an extension next off-season.

Drew is willing to restructure. The FO wants to restructure. It will happen when it is beneficial for both parties. Apparently, now isn't the time to push his money forward. After all the FO wants to extend him but they don't want to get tied too deeply into a contract that may or may not have value longer than a single extension.
