New Orleans QB Drew Brees willing to restructure contract to re-sign TE Graham


New Orleans QB Drew Brees willing to restructure contract to re-sign TE Graham

The New Orleans Saints figure to be 12 million dollars over the salary cap going into the offseason, luckily Drew Brees @drewbrees is willing to restructure his deal to free up some money for the team. Brees is two years into a five year 100 million dollar contract and stands to make 18.4 million this year. It's important to note Brees never said anything about a pay cut, he's talking about an extension; making it a team and player friendly arrangement.

Fantasy Analysis:

This make a lot of sense considering Brees wants his favorite target Jimmy Graham @TheJimmyGraham to re-sign with the team. Graham leads a long list of Saints free agents this offseason, making their large cap number a problem. They always have the franchise tag at their disposal, and considering Graham will want to be paid more like a wide receiver than tight end, that might be a good deal for the Saints. Whether it's a long term deal now or the franchise tag, New Orleans will make sure Graham is in a Saints uniform for the foreseeable future.
