Saints quarterback Drew Brees wanted to stay in New Orleans more than he wanted to maximize his value.
As a result, he took a two-year, $50 million contract that reportedly had just $27 million guaranteed.
While the coach is confident Carson Wentz can return to MVP candidate form (He’s doing really well.

In a letter in the ers’ Tribune, Smith writes that Kansas City has incredibly passionate fans, and he’s going to miss ing for them.
Bruce Irvin Elite Jersey I’m going to miss pulling into Arrowhead and snaking through the thousands of tailgaters that make up Chiefs Kingdom, Smith writes. As a quarterback, you arrive to the stadium pretty early on game day. And Roberto Clemente Jersey when I’d get to Arrowhead, the parking lot would already be full. Honestly, if you show up to tailgate in Kansas City at 8:30 a.m., you’re already late to the party. And I can tell you that after 13 seasons and ing in nearly every NFL stadium, not every city is like that. Just seeing how dedicated Chiefs fans are, it always instilled a sense of pride in me to put on that jersey and go out and for them. I don’t think that’s always the case in pro sports, and I never took that for granted during my five years in Kansas City. I’m going to miss that.
Cousins said the deal is what it is, but said that the organization is what excites him about coming to a place he said he expects to spend the rest of his career. While breaking down the steps that led to Minnesota, Cousins’ agent Mike McCartney told a similar story.
McCartney admitted that it was important for him to surpass Jimmy Garoppolo’s contract, but said that Cousins didn’t take the biggest offer on the table.
But at the same token at the end of the day, I want you to get excited to go home where your wife and family are flourishing and if we can find both of those I think we’ve done our job.
