Default Re: Flacco to be looking for $20M !!

Flacco's cap number for 2013 will likely be less than $10M (maybe a few million less than that), whereas the non-exclusive tag would have been $14.6M, and the exclusive tag $18M+.

doubt it....i'd say his deal probably looks about the same as drew's....

Brees and the Saints reached an agreement Friday on the terms of a new deal, which includes $60 million in guaranteed money and a $37 million signing bonus. Brees will earn $40 million in the first year of the contract, and the $20 million yearly average salary makes it the NFL's richest.
The deal gives the Saints flexibility in the short term. With the bonuses counting against the cap on a pro-rated basis over the life of the contract -- $7.4 million per year in Brees' case -- Brees will only count $10.4 million against the Saints' salary cap in 2012.
