Brees Cap Numbers beyond 2017

Drew Brees Contract Details, Salary Cap Breakdowns, Salaries, Bonuses | Spotrac

Looks like $6 million in dead weight for the next three years each year. If they resign him which is very likely, with our tighter than expected current cap situation, they will be hitting the limits of the cap every year until he retires.

No. You have it completely wrong. Those future years are set to be automatically voided with a $6 million minimum. They will add each new year as they come. His overall average cap hit as compared to the max cap will likely continue to become less and less noticeable for a commodity with his importance.

And where did you get "tighter than expected current cap situation"? The cap is climbing by around 9% every year and I will guarantee you the "loan" hit was factored in by Loomis as soon as it was applied back in 2011.
