Re-sign Drew Brees

This won't be the most immediate priority, because Brees is under contract through 2011. But he's the most important player on the roster.
Rest assured, Brees isn't going anywhere. This is a deal that will get done, probably this summer. The Saints and Brees' agent, Tom Condon, may wait until after another Condon client, Peyton Manning, signs his deal with Indianapolis to set the market. Manning's deal is expected to be in the range of $20 million per year. Brees' extension probably will be in the same ballpark as Manning's deal and the recent four-year, $72 million extension that Tom Brady signed with New England.

Other prominent Saints heading into the last year of their contracts include cornerback Tracy Porter and receivers Marques Colston and Robert Meachem. In a normal year, this would be a time to negotiate contract extensions. This year they might have to wait in line.

Looks like the offseason will be more painful than the postseason.

I'm excited about this offseason. I think we will have the chance to trim some fat from the roster. I really want to keep Moore, Ayodele, and Hargrove of the unrestricted free agents.
