11:48 AM ET 01.14 | The New Orleans Saints were eliminated from the NFL Playoffs after a loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the divisional round this past weekend, so now they will begin looking ahead to next season and preparing for the offseason. As is always the case with teams as they analyze their roster for next year, the Saints will need to look at the current contracts and determine whether or not to restructure some deals or cut a few players loose to create free space under the salary cap. One player who could be approached is quarterback Drew Brees, who is more than willing to re-structure his contract with the team.

For starters he should take a 40% pay cut any week they play in Seattle.

Restructuring can mean anything. Didn't Brady restructure a number of times? He's making a bundle.

He'll still be paid a ton. This is business as usual.

Basically all the top paid players should learn to not be so greedy so that teams can afford to get quality players at the most number of positions that they can.

This is called being a team player. Others have done it as well (Brady, I think), but not many....
