Is Brees Moving Toward Free Agency?
 
Last year, as Brees was entering the final year of his contract, he signed a one-year extension. Which now puts him in the same place he was a year ago one season removed from free agency. This time around, however, there is no discussion about an extension.

Brees has stated that he plans to continue with year to year contracts until he retires. He is already guaranteed $18 million in 2018 with a $6 million signing bonus. If he doesn't decide to retire, they can extend another year, same terms. This can go on until he decides to retire in five or so years.

Is that 24 mil against the cap?

Yes, unless they extend creatively again. The more you can push back the better. The way the cap is skyrocketing it makes sense to push cap back to where it is a smaller percentage of the total. That's actually a bargain given the latest trends, especially for one of the two or three best QB's in the league.
