RE: Bad News Guys

Dan Pompei said the same thing in Cold Pizza// why I'm watching Cold Pizza is none of your business

.. .. there's one side of things that we haven't discussed, though...

... while the Saints are offering the most guaranteed money to play football, Brees would have a chance to make much much more money in endorsements if he goes to Miami, which could easily compensate - if not sweeten the deal - for the money guaranteed to only play football...

Brees Prefers Dolphins

I like Brees. I think he's a good QB, much better than what we're used to. However, do we really need a QB that thinks of our team as his "second choice". Despite the fact that the Saints have offered him more money, he still would rather play for the Dolphins. We need a QB that wants to play for us. A QB that would be greatful to play for our team. Not someone who would settle for us because the other team wouldn't offer him the same amount of money.

Here is the article about Brees: http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald...iherald_sports

i think edge james preferred indy too. i'm happy either way if leinart follows or passes the carson palmer train of success. i just hope the FO has some other irons in the fire and aren't sitting on their hands waiting for a response.

as far as wanting to play, leinart has said the right things but do you think he would pick NO over the Jets? FAs just get to make it a little clearer unless you have some incredible negotiating leverage like eli did.

Bad news??? This isn't bad news... the fans don't want Brees in SD why should we? Pass him on by, he also may have benefited from a top notch OL and D not to mention a guy known by 2 letters as his RB.

1. I love how TR always covers himself in his posts, to prevent my sarcastic remarks. One day, old man, one day.....

2. LKelley67- you gotta lose the AV, please find an alternate solution.

Brees-Dolphins talks put off 'til Tuesday: The Dolphins and quarterback Drew Brees are expected to resume negotiations Tuesday. Brees left Miami on Monday evening for Birmingham, Ala., where he's rehabbing his right shoulder under the watchful eye of Dr. James Andrews, who performed the operation in January.

Contract talks between the Dolphins and Brees' agent, Tom Condon, did not take place because Brees spent the day undergoing a battery of doctors' tests. He underwent so many that he had to visit at least two different facilities to be tested. Not only did doctors perform an MRI on his shoulder, but the Dolphins gave Brees a full physical.

The hangup between Brees and the Dolphins is how much of a contract will be guaranteed. The Saints are believed to be offering more money and more guarantees than the Dolphins, who are wary of guaranteeing $10 million of his contract after he came off shoulder surgery.
This is from ESPNInsider's John Clayton. It makes me believe that the Dolphins are scared about the shoulder, BUT, if they can determine that the shoulder is strong enough not to be a problem, then they'll probably add more money. Just my opinion
