"Unless some team breaks the bank to sign him – and I really don’t think that’s going to happen – I look for him re-sign with the Saints for about $3 million annually."
Robert Meachem is entering the final year of his rookie contract, he will get a raise from $950k to $1.2M for his base salary. Devery Henderson meanwhile is set to make $2.25M in 2011, although it’s likely he will be asked to take a pay cut given his production, also the team needs the money to help build Moore’s contract.
It only makes sense for Moore to re-sign with the Saints, he is comfortable with the system and the quarterback. One could make the argument that his production wouldn’t be nearly as high if it’s not Drew Brees that is getting him the ball inside the Saints potent offense.
Moore however will have options in free agency and it certainly seems possible a team could offer him a blockbuster deal that the Saints simply could not match.
After all it’s only speculation that he will return and the Saints have a laundry list of talent to try and re-sign before the start of the season. Lastly there is still the issue of Brees’ new contract looming on the horizon, which will likely make him the NFL’s highest paid quarterback.
