The Saints and Drew Brees have agreed on a restructuring of his contract, according to a report from the NFL Network.

Part of Brees’ salary cap hit has been moved to 2020, freeing up $10.8 million in space for this year. The extra space gives the Saints more ammo via cap room to fill out the roster in free agency.
