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.
Ok, so you agree NFL contracts aren't guaranteed and a star player like Brees can only be guaranteed 60% of the contract even after he holds out. Most NFL players are not stars like Brees and they are in even worse shape.
There is no comparison to the NHL players who are in better situation in terms of guaranteed contracts.
