Drew Brees officially goes on reserve/retired list

Drew Brees announced his retirement some time ago, but the end of his playing career only became official on Friday.

The Saints placed Brees on the reserve/retired list in a move that was delayed for reasons related to the salary cap. By waiting until after June 1 to put Brees on the list, the Saints were able to gain a nice chunk of cap space because they could split the amount of dead money on the cap between this season and 2022.

Brees will account for $11.15 million under the cap in each season. Prior to retiring, Brees also cut his $25 million salary for 2021 to the league minimum in February and created almost $24 million in cap space for the Saints to use this offseason.

The Saints still had to restructure cornerback Marshon LattimoreĎs deal to sign their draft picks, which shows how tight theyíve been to the salary cap this season and how much worse it would have been without the maneuvers involving Brees on his way out of town.

I still tear up every time I read that he's retiring! Mark my words. He'll come back stronger next year. Remember that you heard it here first.

I'm more proud than sad. Considering the injuries the last few years, Drew pretty much emptied the tank and gave us what he had left.

Good riddance! Piece of sh1t! Finally we can get a real quarterback.


I know someone is thinking it, figures I would say it to see how absolutely absurd it sounds.
