Soon-to-be free agent Drew Brees takes note of Matthew Stafford’s contract

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; That's insane money for an above average passer, but Tom Condon will turn it into a death sentence for this team......

The NFL is only a meritocracy to a certain degree. The rest is a business. A $14 billion a year business. And it's a business where over 40% of that income must be paid in player salaries due to collective bargaining. In round numbers that's $3.5 million per player on the 32 53 man squads. Note that rookie contract, UDFA, and vet minimum players make much less than that.

As I stated above, NFL teams also have a rolling minimum spending average that they must meet.

Literally the money must be spent somewhere. And like it or not, each starting NFL QB is the media face of the franchise.

The system is working. According to:NFL will reach $14 billion in 2017 revenue – ProFootballTalk revenue is up to $14 billion in 2017 from $8 billion in 2010, a 75% increase in revenue in only 7 years.

So while the money is both insane and real, to organizations it's really Monopoly money as in a lot of ways it's not dollar coming directly from the owner's pockets.

BTW the franchise QB system works. Since 2000 I believe there were only two journeymen QBs that won a SB title (Dilfer in 2000, Johnson in 2003). There's no shot at winning it all without one.

So that's why the money follows the face.

Super Bowl Championships: New Orleans Saints:1, Carolina:0, Atlanta Chokers: STILL ZERO

Only Atlanta choked in an unchokable situation... Life is definitely good.

When they do, we'll be a 7-9, 9-7, 8-8 team with a 5000 PaYd Season Quarterback...

So that will be that as no team has won a Championship in the CBA era with a QB taking over 12% of the salary cap...

Drew is going to get paid. I hate to say it, maybe just maybe not by the Saints.

Stafford can't carry Drew jock strap. What is Detriot thinking.
