Drew Brees – Important – Transaction
QB Drew Brees agreed to a two-year, $50 million contract, multiple outlets reported on Tuesday. Brees will receive $27 million guaranteed in the first year, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported. The contract is expected to be finalized later on Tuesday. Had the 39-year-old Brees remained unsigned by Wednesday, $18 million in dead money from his current contract would immediately count against the team’s salary cap in 2018.
