    So how do they manage to keep anything around him. I mean honestly can they pay for a legit team at al around him?

        I'm wondering the same thing? Are they really paying Brees $40mil this season? I can't imagine they have the cap space for that and if they did why didn't they go out and get pieces to upgrade the team?

        The $20mil per season isn't that shocking to me....but the $40mil for Year 1 is.

            He is going to be like Nelson on the Simpsons, throwing the ball to himself and scoring TDs using Bart as his forced blocker lol.

                "Brees's 2012 salary of $40 million is fully guaranteed, breaking down as $37 million in bonus and $3 million in salary. The deal carries a $10.4 million cap hit. In 2013, the Saints will have a three-day window to release him after the waiver period begins (five days after the Super Bowl); if not, Brees gets another $15 million of fully guaranteed earnings, bringing his two-year total to $55 million." -ESPN

                  It's funny because some of the players on their team will be getting cut. What a huge contract.

                    Da Aints could save a lot of Money if they could sign Cushing, with Brees playing offense and Cush on "D" look at the moolah they could save.

                      Whether he gets $40 mill in one year is not that relevant to the cap hit because the length of the contract coupled with the average yearly guaranteed money is the number that goes against the cap. So if he got 5 years at 20 mill then the cap hit is 20 mill, not 40 mill in year one and then on.

                        I'm not too savy on the cap and all but wouldn't 20m for one player hurt your ballclub? Maybe not now but say in a year or so I would think it's gotta catch up to a team. I don't know so thats why I'm throwing it out there... Cap for dummies plz

                          Actuaqlly the 2012/3 cap hit is only like 10.4 so 89.6 is over the next 4 years which is 22-23, this year his salary is 3 plus one 5th of the bonus so that is why the number is so low, but they are borrowing against furtue cap increases.

                            I'm sorry I think drew brees is a great QB. But this is crazy. everyone but N.O. prolly thinks this is crazy.

                            I mean really??? He is officially a cap casualty. How are they going to be able to have depth.

                            Good bye Vilma, Jenkins, and Thomas

                            They are going to need to shed some $$$ for cap relief come next year.

                            Stupid that drew brees put them in that position.

                            He cashed in. Don't blame him. He capitalized and got Benson in a bad spot. Put him in a corner. I get it, he is financially set his family is set whether he plays another down or not.

                            But come on.

                            They won't even be able to cut him for his high annual salary because he is owed 60M Gauranteed.

                              Happy to see Brees got paid. If anyone deserves it Brees does. Elite quarterbacks carry a team and should be paid accordingly. $ to value this contract makes a lot more sense then Calvin Johnson's or Mario's.
