Drew Brees will need to take 'hometown discount' to stay after 2015, report says

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He's not leaving. Pretty sure I heard Tasker during the game say that the Saints had two options: pay Brees 30 million next year or restructure, letting him walk would be a horrible decision...

If we really wanted to get rid of Brees, ask him to restructure, and if not, DON'T resign him after next year. Otherwise, cutting him lose is the stupidest thing we could do. Just sayin'.

We really can't afford a defense because we wasted HUGE cap on flunkies like Byrd and Browner. Byrd is the MOST disturbing for his lack of production vs. what he is paid. Browner is just disturbing in general, but gets paid less than Byrd. It's sad, cutting both would improve our team, but cutting Byrd (at least) is another guaranteed contract that will hit our cap. STUPID!

We should NEVER have let go Roman Harper or Tracy Porter for that matter. Both are productive in the NFL and don't get paid as much as some of our dummies do!
Thats what I am saying and also why I dont think the problem lies with Loomis. It hasnt been a matter of not being able to afford a defense, Loomis always finds the money to sign one or two big names. The problem is once Loomis finds that money it gets spent on underachieving players. If anything maybe Loomis needs to have more power so he can have some say in who gets signed and who doesnt. At the very least let him have the power to fire some of these scouts and hold a few people accountable. Its obvious Payton wont. Look at Vitt, McMahan, etc. They should have been long gone.

They can restructure and trade. If Manning is indeed finished I could see a team like the Broncos taking on that salary. Again it would be a dumb ass move to do so but it could happen.

Denver is dumb enough to go with Brock Osweiller. IF he does go, his best bet is Miami or Chicago. KC would be the best place but Grubbs is there.

I dont think it is dumb if Denver moves on from Manning. He has regressed snd only getting injured more snd more as time moves on. That $20ml in cap money could go a long way on building a championship team.

Problem is Denver is trying to put in Kubiak's offense which Manning is a poor fit...

Manning is used to moving the ball, scoring...

Kubiak is used to losing...

You can see the logic...

Brees has already said he is more than willing to restructure. It was not financially necessary until this coming off-season.

I believe it was "financially necessary" last season to restructure his contract, prior to releasing several veteran players to clear cap space. Now that the team has already been gutted tells me that Brees was not in agreement with restructuring his contract and is now being forced to, or else. (IMO) Saints are already in rebuild mode. Releasing him and handing the reins over to Grayson so that he can mature with the current younger plays seems logical to me.
