I'll have to find it again but I read recently where because of him signing an extension with the last year a "void" year it would put 18 mil against our cap.

I have pointed this out before. Drew has the same agent as does Peyton Manning. Manning spent his last several years on a year to year contract to be able to decide his future and not handcuff the franchise. The difference is that he suffered the injury so the decision wasn't his. Brees will be in New Orleans until whenever he chooses to retire. Let us all pray it is no sooner than 2023.

No such thing as a 100% guarantee in the NFL
