This year basically has a huge signing bonus and then it's a 4 year deal with 60 million remaining and 20 million guaranteed.
The reason why no one else does this is because 99% of players would throw a pissy fit after their pay dropped that much and demand a new deal. However, Brees is smart, will save the money, and will not have this issue.
I actually thought it as a smart move on the Saints part.
