Thats something we havent seen that much since we finally got rid of all that dead money but with that said it should be a very exciting time and bring jimmy home

Re: Drew Brees Deal is Done!

Brees apologized to Tom Condon? F**k Tom Condon!

I get it's Condon's job to get max for his client, but there's also success measured in other ways and that includes more endorsements for a repeat Superbowl winner...

Condon's made plenty at the expense of this team's AND Brees' success, so that MoFo is owed no apology; that's just Brees' good character...

Next CBA should have a caveat to allow for one true franchise player where his cap number doesn't break the team's ability to be competitive...

Hmm? Brees wasn't owed anything. That $18 million is simply cap accounting. Brees got all his extension money from the last contract when he signed it in 2016.

We'll have to wait for the details to see how long the out years are.

Re: Drew Brees Deal is Done!

Anyone else think this is a shorter deal than expected? I was expecting at least a 3 year deal. Maybe even a four year deal to make sure he is here to retirement.

No. It is essentially a one year deal. The $27 million is guaranteed in year one and year two is a team option. This reflects exactly what Brees has mentioned about the remainder of his career as a Saint. He has said he expects, even while planning on playing well into his 40's (all with the Saints), that he'll play it year to year for the rest of his career.

I have been saying all along that the deal would most likely be of this type. Yes, other types of deals have been speculated, but this deal matches what Brees had detailed himself.

Re: Drew Brees agrees to re-sign with Saints on two-year, $50M deal

Colin Cowherd just did a really nice few minutes on Drew. Tune in for the rerun if you can.

This!

This is what I was speaking of in another thread about Jimmy Graham. The player has the power, not the agent, and certainly not the NFLPA. Drew is a walking example of how to live.
