The Saints seem just fine with Drew Brees' $30 million cap hit and pending free agency

New, comments

Could the Saints really let Drew Brees become a free agent? The Saints approached Brees' agent, Tom Condon, about restructuring his contract -- and its $30 million cap hit this year -- earlier in the offseason, but since then they haven't made any mention of it to Condon or his client. His deal expires after this season, so this raises all kinds of questions about his future in New Orleans, and the usual question of who the hell is in charge of the Saints' salary cap in the first place.

KUUUUUUUUUHN! Are the Packers parting ways with John Kuhn? We don't spend much time talking about fullbacks, but we'll make an exception for Kuhn, the Packers' 33-year-old bulldozer and currently an unrestricted free agent. Green Bay has reportedly made the decision to go into the 2016 without No. 30 for the first time in nearly a decade. However, there are also reports that the Packers are interested in bringing Kuhn back this season.

JERRY JONES IS NOT A FAN OF MARK DAVISJerry Jones wants the Raiders to move to Vegas, and he wants them to do it without Mark Davis. Mike Freeman has a temperature check of the owners and finds a growing level of support for putting a team, the Raiders, in Las Vegas, albeit with a few holdouts like Giants owner John Mara. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is the one really pushing for the move, but he's reportedly pretty firm in his belief that Mark Davis is not the right man to own that team.
