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...

Tom Condon still has a chance at a mega $ QB contract. The dirty birds are negotiating an extension for Matt Ryan this offseason. Let's see if he can get $30 million a year.

Why stop at 30 if you can get 35

Going have to start some creative accountancy for any big deals.

We started out with $31.3M free cap. Brees was already counting $6 toward that figure. The new deal adds an additional $18M leaving $13.3M. There is also around $9M in roster bonuses that can be automatically converted to signing bonuses thus free up another $6M to $7M. Therefore, before doing any creative accounting, such as restructuring deals, we're looking at around $20M to work with. Converting roster bonuses do not required approval of the player as it looks the same to them. The only difference is that the amount is amortized for cap reasons over the remainder of their contract. The player gets the whole amount regardless.

I am hereby letting everyone know that I have submitted the terms "prebreesian" and "postbreesian" for copyright consideration.
