I Want Drew Brees Back IF.......
 
What are you willing to do to have Drew Bress back next season? What would make you want to pass on re-signing the future HOF player?

For me, it's time for Drew to take the kind of pay cut that allows this roster to be rounded out.

Want to know what sucks? We’ll carry $21.3 million in dead cap next season for Drew Brees whether he plays or not thanks to how we did his contract. So if we re-sign him to another one or two year deal with a $25-30 mil cap hit... he’s going to count almost $50 mil of our cap space.

I would like to move on from drew and use the money to fix the o line interior,add another really good receiver,and another stud to play next to dimario along with resigning what we have. I love Drew,and I honestly don't think he's quite done,but for some reason the team seems to play better without him. Maybe it's just the predictability factor when he's in. We have a damn good team and coaching staff and the was proved when we won 5 games strait with teddy frikin Bridgewater! Not trying to dog drew out,just giving my honest opinion. That guy will always be a legend here!

If he retires (doubt it) that 21.3 is off the books right?

Sadly not my friend. That 21.3 is there regardless.

It's really tough to know. Brees is still so accurate it seems a waste for him to retire. I think we might want to consider a true 50/50 2-QB system with Brees and Taysom. It would extend Drew's career and let us get the versatility our offense needs. It would also show Drew doesn't give a poo about the records and really just wants another ring. The more I think about it, that might be the best way to go. You can't underestimate the effect of not having Brees' leadership and going cold turkey.

Drew Brees may retire if Brady retires. Brady plays next year, Brees ain’t goin nowhere.

Then Brees would be doing it for the wrong reasons. The records don't matter, good chance Mahomes or Burrow some other young QB will trump them anyway. Just ask Dan Marino.
