Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints have reached an agreement on a five-year, $100 million contract that all sides concur will guarantee Brees an NFL-record $60 million, including a first-year take in 2012 of $40 million, according to league, players union, and team sources.

Sixty million guaranteed with 40 mil the first year tells me it's Peyton that got the lesser contract.

they just gave Brees $40m for one year. One year. They will probably give him $20m in year two, and then the rest over the remainder of the contract. $60m in two years is huge. Manning will be getting around $40m in two years with the Broncos.

Nope, doesn't make me think either of those things. The two contracts weren't even close to the same in value.

I'm cool with the Allen trade in hindsight, especially because we have a great pass rusher in Hali and what is looking to be another good one Justin Houston.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- The Baltimore Ravens signed Ray Rice to a new five-year contract Monday worth roughly $40 million.

The Ravens and their standout running back went right down to the 4 p.m. deadline before hammering out the deal. Had Rice not signed, he would have played the 2012 season under the $7.7 million franchise tag tender.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has been arrested in Texas.

According to MyFoxdfw.com, the NFL superstar was arrested in DeSoto, TX and is facing a Class A family violence charge ... however the details surrounding the arrest are unclear.

Law enforcement tells us 23-year-old Bryant is not currently in custody.

When contacted by a local media outlet, Bryant confirmed there was an incident ... but wouldn't get into specifics. He did say, "I'm good."

This isn't Bryant's first brush with the law ... earlier this year, he was detained by Miami police after he was allegedly involved in an altercation outside LIV nightclub ... but he was not arrested and no police report was filed.

Drew Brees would have to make nothing in endorsements for this to still be accurate.

Broncos | Ryan Clady contract talks hit snag
Wed, 18 Jul 2012 06:28:10 -0700

Contract negotiations between the Denver Broncos and OT Ryan Clady have hit a snag. The two sides recently exchanged proposals but the numbers were far enough apart that a league source said an extension by the time the team reports to training camp next week does not seem likely. Clady is scheduled to make $3.5 million this season in the final year of his rookie contract.

Peyton Manning is about to make Ryan Clady a very rich man next offseason.

Linebacker Dont'a Hightower and the New England Patriots have agreed to terms on a four-year deal, according to a league source.

Hightower, a linebacker out of Alabama, was the 25th overall pick in April's draft. The Pats traded up to get him, sending a first-round pick (31st overall) and a fourth-round pick (126th overall) to the Denver Broncos for No. 25.

RIP Cleveland Elam:

Former NFL defensive lineman Cleveland Elam dies at 60

Cleveland Elam, an extraordinarily talented defensive lineman whose promising career was cut short by knee injuries, has died at the age of 60.

In 1976 Elam had a team-high 17.5 sacks (which weren’t yet considered an official NFL statistic), earning the first of his two consecutive Pro Bowl selections.

You should've started a thread with "Elam dead" as the title. That would've had real potential.
