The Saints have agreed to terms with their top pick from this year’s draft on a contract.

According to multiple reports, first-round pick Bryan Bresee has agreed to his four-year deal with the team. The defensive tackle stands to make over $12.263 million over the life of the deal and the Saints hold a team option for a fifth season.

The Saints made Bresee the 29th overall pick after watching him at Clemson over the last three years. Bresee had 51 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, nine sacks, four passes defensed, and one forced fumble in 25 games for the ACC school.

Second-round defensive end Isaiah Foskey and fourth-round quarterback Jake Haener are now the only Saints draft picks who haven’t agreed to contracts with the team.

  1. This guy will play 68 games for $12 million..

    There are college players getting better deals than that.

    The NIL consequence is going to cause the NFL to modify it’s rookie wage scale. What happens if Caleb Williams opts to return to USC rather than go to a dumpsterfire franchise. Owners will start clamouring for the days when they could pay what it takes.

  2. If there is one player that I really want to make it that isn’t on my team, it’s him. Dude went through a lot, he deserves it.

    I honestly think that he’s going to end up being the steal of this draft based on how late he was drafted in the first.
