From professional sports players to entertainers, people in these industries are always dealing with contracts. A professional football player like Drew Brees, for example, has his playing contract to consider, as well as any endorsement deals he is able to drum up.
Our California readers may not be huge fans of Drew Brees, now that he plays for the New Orleans Saints, however, most are familiar with the success he has had on and off the field.
According to recent reports, Brees is open to restructuring his current contract with the Saints. Players often do this as a means of getting a longer deal with a team, or of course, freeing up space to sign other players that could make an immediate impact.
He noted, "Whatever I can do to help this team, if they want to come to me and extend me even further, that'd be great."
In addition to his performance on the field, Brees has been one of the good guys of the NFL for quite some time. This is something that will go a long way in making the contract discussions easier for both sides.
Many fans look at an NFL contract from the outside and all they see is a dollar sign with a big number. While money is the driving force behind each contract, there are many other details that are taken into consideration along the way. The assistance of a contract attorney, with targeted experience, is something that most professional athletes and entertainers require throughout the duration of their career.
