They couldn't do what the Colts did.
Unless Brees has something in his contract that would allow the team to forgo a huge cap hit similar to way the Colts structured Peyton's there's no way they could release him.
I think the Colts were off the hook for everything but a 10-11M dollar cap hit this year only.
Brees signed with 37M as a bonus. That'd leave like 30M on the books.
If they get the #1 pick, they'd be wise to ransom it to the highest bidder.
After the price paid for the #2 last year, I think the Saints could get a ton.
