We have to trust Mickey Loomis did his due diligence.







I'll go ahead and make this prediction, regardless of how the rest of free agency plays out, if Chase Young gets 12 sacks, we'll win 10 games. If he gets 6, we'll win 7. Being blessed with so much god given physical talent, that's how impactful he can be if he's healthy and motivated for his next contract. Now with that said, the crappy part is that he's so gifted that even if he doesn't ball out for us, he's going to remain a rich man regardless as someone will always take a chance on him unless he gets suspended or kicked out the league.

I really hope he goes out there and tries to earn that fat contract.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

And that is the power of earning ROY. Keeping my fingers crossed.

A bunch of broken misfit toys loosely assembled for Dennis Allen to preside over. There will be Pain.

Yup. And he is the same person that EARNED that Rookie of the Year.

Oh, and that contract isn't as fat as it initially appeared. Loomis knows what he's doing.

Here is an article breaking it down. Seems like the team did their due diligence and put a mess of conditions on him making the full $13m+! I feel better having learned the terms.

You need to put the crack pipe down. Even Loomis knows that.

Re: Saints sign Chase Young

The per game roster bonuses are good mechanism IF they stay in place. The thing is, addictions are hard to break, and roster bonuses make excellent candidates for restructuring, which is a certain junkies drug of choice. The legitimate fear I have is that a certain PR genius knows he can double dip on getting credit for engineering these roster bonuses as injury protection, then once the story fades, restructuring to prove cap wizard acumen creating cap space to make some other ill advised move happen. If the junkie needs a fix, I would not be surprised at all to read in May that the Saints have restructured Chase Young's contract to free up $7.5 million in cap space. This would involve converting his $2.7 million base salary to $1.2 million bonus and converting his weekly roster bonuses to a lump some restructure bonus, both prorated over 5 years. Worse still, this could be spun further to lump the restructure into an extension just a few weeks in the season, based on very small sample size of effort and durability, just like Granderson and Ruiz were extended in the first 3 weeks of the season last year. Similarly last year the Saints expected that Alvin Kamara would face a suspension, but still restructured his base salary into a bonus, effectively guaranteeing the vast majority of his pay for the affected games, and giving away financial protection in return for short term cap relief and long term debt. I hope the injury protections are real, but considering that last year the Saints did not leave any stone unturned on restructuring including a player they knew would be suspended and were down to about $3 million that could have possibly been freed up, I think I have a right to doubt whether they will leave $8 million unturned for the whole year and truly protect us from another injury with this player.
