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.
At what point did I ever say his contract was fully guaranteed? I said it was front loaded so he could make the bulk of his money upfront. Which he is doing. Are you disputing that 50m in the first two years isn't a front loaded contract?
The agents then put the phony years at the end to spread the bonus out.
The deal is structured to give the Saints cap relief in the beginning, and it would make little sense to cut him until the backend of the deal.
