Well, got find a way to move his deadcap first.

His dead cap is unmovable at the start of the new league year. That date and time I believe is March 18th @4 EST. That will be the deadline for a new Brees deal. I also think they would prefer to sign it after the new CBA gets approved (which is no guarantee) late Saturday to early Sunday. That means the hot spot for a new deal is March 16 or March 17. That is when I will be refreshing like a son of a gun!!

Correct. I expect him to be signed to a 2-3 year deal on March 17 that pays 23 mill with voidable contract years or whatever else Loomis does ?

I think the title should read, "Brees willing to give a hometown discount, again"
He has been playing here on the last deal, for less than he could have gotten elsewhere.

I believe the Cards were willing to give Brees 30 million back in 2018. So taking less was a home town discount IMO.

Yup, sure was. This year I'm hoping he gives us a "sweet" home-town discount.
Not exactly play for free like the media makes out that Tom Brady did... but a little sweeter.

Sign him to the Pels for a few million to entice him with a little lagniappe to take less for the NFL contract. Not like he'll have to play anyway for the next few weeks.
