    Re: Brady's contract re structure in offseason

    What am I missing here? Seriously.  Brady, by every account I have ever read on the matter, ends up with more guaranteed money and a longer term commitment from the team with this restructure.  It has been widely discussed publicly and, at first, it was viewed as more of a team friendly deal.  Once the "analysts" got down in the weeds, however, they found that it was a very good deal for both sides.  Much more cap friendly than the previous deal and, all in all, excellent money for TB (who, by the way, has never expressed any interest in being the highest paid guy at his position).

    thyats what I am saying...TB had 2 years at $21M each year left on his contract. AFter the 2 years, he would have then had to negotiate a new contract at 38 years old....never a sure thing...

    so turning 2/$42 into 5/$70 is a very good deal for TB

    the PAts on the other hand faced a real problem paying TB $21M each of the next 2 years with the cap flat...so they lowered the hit over the next 2 years by $16m...nice for the Pats...better for TB
