The value of the contract is based on the signing bonus. That is what is the most important aspect of the deal, because it is guaranteed. It is considered part of the salary, and that is why you will never see a deal that isn't front loaded.
No need to spin on the syntax instead of looking at the contract detail. The discussion was whether the contract is guaranteed and then how NFL players can be cut to create cap room. What matters in this topic is "salary" being backloaded or frontloaded which decides when a player can be cut.
No matter how you spins, Brees is only guaranteed to see 60M even when he signed a 100M contract. You can't call a contract being guaranteed when only 60% is guaranteed.
