Drew Brees and Saints aren't close to an extension. Says he won't show up to camp without a deal, and wont do a one year deal.
Been an awesome offseason for the Saints.
Doesn't there need to be an out clause though?
Either way, don't see why you don't try and give Drew Brees what he's worth.
In the NFL contracts are only guarenteed for the season, this is why to see what a contract's really worth you have to look at the guarenteed money (or signing bonus). That's how that little part of the deal is worked around. This is why the length of the contract is never really the focal point. It's not like in baseball where if you give a guy 5 years 100 million, you're going to be paying him 20 million in that 4th and 5th year even if he turns into a Suppan.
In the NFL veterans are cut all the time to save cap room, or they're at least told to restructure their contract or take a pay cut with the threat of being cut if they don't.
It's just nice to read a story from the NFL that doesn't include the phrase "was arrested".
Those are few and far between. The Ginger Hammer is going to have to drop some more justice
The Ginger Hammer is going to have to swing into action again as yet ANOTHER player has been arrested, this time Dez Bryant for domestic abuse.
Not sure where domestic abuse falls on the suspension line for the Ginger Hammer. Can't wait to find out what he makes up this time
Become? It's surpassed it by light years. I don't think the players being drafted are really paying attention at the rookie symposiums. This clown the Browns drafted in the supplemental draft, Josh Gordon is another great citizen in the making.
But hey, PEDs in baseball. That's what is really wrong with the sporting world.
The excessive boozing, assaults, and drug use? Not a problem.
