Last year, Bears G.M. Ryan Pace tried to bolster Chicago’s offense in free agency, signing quarterback Mike Glennon to a three-year, $45 million contract, and wide receiver Markus Wheaton to a two-year, $11 million contract. Those signings turned out to be big mistakes, and Glennon and Wheaton won’t be with the Bears in 2018.
This year, Pace has again tried to bolster the Bears’ offense, agreeing to a three-year, $42 million contract with wide receiver Allen Robinson. If this move doesn’t work out, it may be Pace’s last chance to right the ship in Andre Dawson Jersey free agency.
Tisch called such talk hypothetical, according to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY. He added that contract negotiations between Beckham and new general manager Dave Gettleman have already begun, though they are in the very early stages. I do hope that Odell is with the Giants for the 2018 season. I would like that very much, Tisch reiterated. Gettleman said he will address the contract situation on Tuesday. As for Beckham’s latest video controversy, Tisch called it background noise and said he didn’t even watch it. Tisch’s comments sharply contrast those of fellow co-owner John Mara, who said he’s growing tired of answering questions about Beckham’s antics.
Separately (or maybe consequently), Saints G.M. Mickey Loomis is believed to be holding firm with the team’s current offer.
It’s unclear what the Saints have on the table, but it’s believed to be well south of the $30 million threshold that every agent wants to be the first one to surpass. At a time when Mike McCartney could be the first one to get to that number with Kirk Cousins, Tom Condon wants to get their first with Brees.
So what hasn’t a deal been done? Brees is willing to use his necessarily limited leverage (given that he’s resisting the possibility of leaving) to get the best deal he can, both for himself and for Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, another Condon/CAA client who is next in line to try to get to $30 million per year or beyond.

There’s still a little leverage that helps Brees get a better deal in the next day. As of Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. ET, his current contract technically voids, creating an $18 million cap charge for 2018. If the deal can be extended before then, that $18 million will be spread equally over the next three years.
