You have got to be kidding. Four years/$100 million is nothing with the ongoing cap situation. In year three he will be in the bottom half of NFL QB pay.

You honestly have no clue. Amazing.

Re: Saints & Brees re-start contract negotiations

I dont care if its 4 years 100ml. What i care about is the guarantee. 4 years-100ml-50 guarantee.

Im all in.
410060 is the limit for me though. Thats 2 years guaranteed with a third year option on 10ml dead money.

Personally i think paying it outright with no signing bonus is best

Agree, thats a bargain and thats just Brees' starting point. It's likely to be bargained down some.

I'b be very happy with 4 years, 100 million.

The way we backload contracts he'll probably be playing for cheap this year and next year with a crazy cap number in years 3 and 4.

And there's nothing wrong with that. The cap is projected to be at $180 million in 2019. It is stupid to not backload contracts in today's world of ever increasing cap.

True enough. In hindsight, you're probably right. I still want Watson though.
