Drew Brees New Contract Gives Saints Salary Cap Relief

It's easy for the uninformed outside observer to say Drew Brees did the Saints no favors when he signed his two-year $44.25 million deal. On the surface, it appears to be a ton of money.....and it is. Because of deferments allowed by Brees from his previous contract, the Saints were due to pay the future Hall of Fame quarterback a whopping $30 million this year alone. When you consider that fact, along with Brees agreeing to a much shorter deal than he wanted, he did the Saints a huge favor.
