The pervading concrete idea of Drew Brees simply taking less money and returning to New Orleans, an idea perpetuated by both the Saints and the quarterback himself in the media, continues to crack a little bit more as each hour of free agency open season wears on. Deadlines spur action, but the Saints lack of movement here is odd: unless they work out a deal, or some kind of bridge deal, with Brees between now and 4 p.m. ET on March 14, New Orleans will be stuck with a dead cap hit of $18 million regardless of where the quarterback signs next year.

Yes, even if Brees returns to New Orleans on a new deal that is negotiated after the start of the league year, New Orleans would still be on the hook for that mammoth cap hit. And if Brees goes elsewhere, well, it would be devastating to a team with legitimate Super Bowl aspirations.
