The Saints have a little more cap space at their disposal as they head into the second day of the new league year.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that quarterback Drew Brees has restructured his deal with the team.



Brees’ contract for 2019 calls for him to make a salary of $11.05 million and a roster bonus of $11.95 million. He’ll still receive that $23 million, but $10.8 million of his expected $33.5 million cap charge will be pushed into the 2020 season. That’s a voidable year, so there will have to be further contract moves to come if the Saints want to avoid a big dead money hit next year.

Re: Drew Brees restructures contract with Saints

Gotta try to make one more run at it. It'll cost us when Brees is done playing, but hopefully by then we will have a decent QB in mind to take the reigns.

11 million pushed to next year really isn't that bad of deal...

Yep, we're painted into a corner here, again, by Payton/Mickster; and have no choice but to grab this dance partner and try to waltz our way into a Superbowl one more time...

I hope this means Drew wants to play two more years. If not, well, we're going all in hopefully with a couple of nice free agent signings to send him off with another Lombardi!

Re: Drew Brees restructures contract with Saints

Obviously there is a plan (possibly re sign Choppa Style, Jared Cooks or Ziggy ?) here ...

To be continued.

One freak play away from the NFC championship game then one horrible non-call away from the Super Bowl.

Ya gotta admit, this is one hell of a good corner to be in.
