He gives us 5 million in cap room. That is easily 3 - 4 mid range players that perform at his same level. I understand we can't use his money until June 1st but we don't have to sign picks anytime soon either.
Just reposting this. With it being the offseason people might like to mess around with this. It is very hard to give someone a new contract in this because you supply EVERY number of the contract yourself. Want to see what Cam does to the team with an even spaced contract? What about a backloaded contract?
Want to see how much money the team saves over two years by designating D. Lo a June 1 cut? Want to see how much money we lose by outright cutting him? Its all in there.
Charles Johnson provides the most relief with a June 1 Cut surprisingly.
I hate it more than anyone else but since when has paying a player after a contract year big money ever worked out for us? When have we not paid a player big money and it work our for us? Imagine if we were still paying Peppers 50% of our cap space? What if we had Mushin Mohammad taking up a crazy amount of the cap the year Steve took us to the NFC Championship game on his back? What if we had a stud WR right now and a 3rd year running back making peanuts instead of DeAngelo Williams? What about Brent Grimes at CB and another 2nd year RB making even less peanuts at RB2?
My point is, last year was our chance to sign G. Hardy to a managable contract, now we would overpay for him just like the Ravens and we would gimp our secondary, offensive line, and WR position to do it. Instead, lets just bite the bullet and let him walk and fill in the gaps with rookies. I love GQ but before the season was our chance, we missed it.
Better run the ball Sean, your franchise qb is going full Romo.
Think a color blind test is in order for Brees
If brees wanna keep throwing int's. We better run the ball to the wheels fall off
Brees has been protected today, but he is playing poorly. This is one of his poorest games ever.
Drew Brees...$100 million huh? Return some of it please cause your costing us this game
I just don't understand it man. Who was Brees throwing to other than a guy in the other uniform??
This game is over. Looks like Brees forgot to show up again. Not a chance in hell with Brees playing the way he is.

Seriously... Just an epic failure on his part. He said the best is yet to come... When is that going to happen Drew? When are you going to stop throwing it to the other team??? Just unreal. Who the heck was he throwing it to?? Is he color blind??
