Brees to get new deal!

They should just let him fill in the numbers! Pay this man!!!!!

Sources: New Orleans Saints plan to extend Brees' contract - ESPN

Just as the Indianapolis Colts say they will extend quarterback Peyton Manning's contract this offseason, the New Orleans Saints will do the same for their quarterback, Drew Brees, according to sources close to the situation.


The Saints intend to redo Brees' deal later this year to bring his salary more in line with the game's top quarterbacks. This season Brees was the 17th-highest paid quarterback in the league, yet he finished second in the league in MVP voting and led New Orleans to the first Super Bowl in franchise history.

New Orleans considered extending Brees' contract last offseason, but opted to wait another year. Now that it has, the price only has risen with Brees performing the way he has. Should the Saints win Super Bowl XLIV, Brees practically would be able to name his price.

Discussions on a new deal have yet to begin, but they will this offseason. A contract is expected to be wrapped up by the time the Saints report to training camp if not during it, but nobody around the league expects Brees to play the 2010 season under the six-year, $60 million contract that he signed in March 2006.

Interestingly, agent Tom Condon represents both Super Bowl quarterbacks, Brees and Manning. Condon will have a large influence in an offseason that will re-establish top quarterback salaries. Last offseason, the Giants signed quarterback Eli Manning to the richest contract in NFL history, and San Diego signed quarterback Philip Rivers to a slightly smaller deal.

Now, Brees and Manning are expected to get new contracts, and New England also plans to discuss a new deal with quarterback Tom Brady, who has one year remaining on his contract.

Yep. I agree. He wants too much money, for what he does. Sorry Reggie. My only question is, WHO is going to give him 8 million a year??? I can't think of one.

Re: Brees to get new deal!

If Saints win he Super Bowl, most likely Brees will get MVP... unless the defense makes a few interceptions and it ends similar to the NFCC.

Though even if he doesn't get MVP, I'm sure he'll get a new contract.

I've been hearing this rumor all year. Although I don't want to see Reggie go, we have Pierre and Mike Bell to fill his shoes if they send him packing. But no doubt Brees will get more money!

Re: Brees to get new deal!

I think it would be in the best interest for both of them (personally) to stay. Think of it... if the Saints win the Super Bowl, they'll be the biggest icons that city has ever seen. After retirement...
Real estate companies will give them houses to use their name.
Pizza joints will feed them.
Auto dealerships will give them free cars.
They'll make boat loads at autograph signings.
Limo services will drive them around for free.
Clubs and bars will keep them partying all night.
The list goes on.
