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
Surprisingly, your limit isn't relevant to real world negotiating.

Re: Saints & Brees re-start contract negotiations

Drew is going to sign and you guys think we might be eyeing a guard too then?

Re: Saints & Brees re-start contract negotiations

If the cap is $60 million, $25 million per year is almost 42 percent of the total salary cap. You want Brees having 42 percent of our salary cap? When we pay Cooks that with Armstead will equate up to over 70 percent of our cap. Players requesting higher money more than ever. Damon Harrison got paid big and he was not exactly a leading team defender. Furthermore in two years Brees, Cooks, and Armstead will combine for nearly $45 million.

when was the cap 60 million 40 years ago?

The cap is like 155 or 160 million, Guido, what's the cap right now?
