Re: Is Brees Considered "Greedy" If He Decides Against Extension?

no i would not but at least I would have an idea what it would take in Drews camp to sign an extension.

Next I would shop him and try to have a sign and trade deal in place in time for the draft.

I just hope he does and opens up some cap room so I don't have to go through another January and February without Saints football.

We don't know that Loomis has any intention of extending Brees. Of course it makes sense, but who knows what may happen.

Re: Is Brees Considered "Greedy" If He Decides Against Extension?

What would be the prevailing thought then? Would it be said as some fans have suggested in the past, that Brees is being “greedy” because he won’t give back part of the money that he has EARNED?
I'm surprised people still think an extension is the equivalent of giving money back.

An extension will earn him more money and more guaranteed money.

So how can he be greedy by turning down more money and more guaranteed money?

How would you be feeling if someone cut your pay by $10,000,000.00- $15,000,000.00?


Damn, what a crazy world...

I can't see how you can call him stupid -

Look if I had 1-2 years left of playing - why not cash in? I say it is called smart!!!

Re: Is Brees Considered "Greedy" If He Decides Against Extension?

When Brees held out last time he ended up getting market value, but on the high end. Remember that Peyton had recently signed with Denver for more than expected, driving up the top 5 (franchise ) rate.
At the time Brees was getting about 20% of our payroll. Not unheard of, but that's a big chunk.

Now our cap situation is even more dire, but Brees is also $100 million richer. Last time it was 'taking care of my family', etc. Now he has 100 plus makes another 10 mill in endorsements annually.

You can't begrudge someone for taking whatever they can get, but the question does need to be asked--How much more money does he really need?
