Green Bay has already restructured Rodgers' contract to make it more attractive for trade. I don't think the possibilities are great, but they definitely are not impossible for the Saints. Along with the Hill extension there are more moves that can free up 2022 & 2023 cap. Couple that with what should be huge leaps in cap levels the next couple of years nothing is impossible.
Two words: Deshaun Watson. There's no one more desperate to get out of HTown but is still stuck.

It's not about the money. It's about the compensation. QBs at this level of discussion will rightly fetch a king's ransom in picks and personnel. We're already looking at a decimated team operate on a temporary basis. Would anyone really want to see this permanently?

Watson isn't stuck because of compensation. He's stuck because of 22 lawsuits and possible criminal counts and a very potential lengthy suspension from the league.

It's par for 2021. Not for the future. Projecting an injured player playing and projecting salaries are vastly different in nature. Apples and oranges, Boston.

Re: Hill new contract

Does anyone think this is a commitment to Taysom as the starter in 2022, and SP sliding over to the Dark side and retooling the offense for the RPO?

We can, but I hope the hell not.

Then why not offer 4 years and $96 million to a slightly better QB Trevor Simien, opening up all that free agent money to get him the receivers he needs.? Not a great solution, but at least he is not one concussion away from retirement.

Siemian is not an NFL starter. He's proven that. And the new Hill contract does open up cap money. That's part of the reason for doing it.

It is apples and oranges. My apples of the reality of 24 million a year contract which is almost top 5 pay as QB vs your made up oranges speculating 24 million will be a steal in 3-4 years because QB salaries would have risen so high.
