It's not really kicking the can down the road in this case. We will see a ton of cap relief next year. Paying Drew 20 million net year and 30 over the following 3 wont matter. It's about just getting the deal done at this point.

The 2017 free agent list is stacked.

Or maybe that 3rd round pick last season is living up to Paytons liking.I would be careful paying a big contract to an aging qb.

Re: Tom Condon: Saints seem satisfied with Drew Brees’ cap number

It doesn't seem like getting him his money and not breaking the bank again should be that difficult.
Quarterback Contracts and Salaries | Over The Cap

the problem is that Brees and Condon aren't going to budge on whatever their # is, so the Saints are going to either pay it or move on. Brees and TC know this is his last deal, so 4 years $100m is not out of the question

I would be ok with 25 million a year. But I would like to see a 3 yr., 75 million. His contract would be up when he is 41. All records would belong to him if he stays healthy. Remember, we will have 31 million in cap relief next year even if Brees stays at 30 million a year.

Re: Tom Condon: Saints seem satisfied with Drew Brees’ cap number

I'd have more faith and confidence in the Payton offensive system than I do in an aging Brees...

Wouldn't pay more than 20 per...

Breaking all the passing records is nice for, him, but, what does it do for our Lombardi count?

Great point. I've often wondered how much of Brees' success is due to Sean Payton and converseley how much of our offensive success is because Sean has Brees as his QB.

Obviously the answer is a ratio of both, but throughout Sean's coaching career he's made every QB he's ever coached look good.

Could Sean take another "good" young ascending QB and turn him into a "great" one like he did with Brees?

I'm kinda excited about seeing that happen, although kinda scared that it won't.

Thoughts?

They'll slap that franchise tag on Andrew Luck.

He's going no where.
