I don't think Mankins will be the issue. Jackson, on the other hand.... I think he has a case of "I got's to get mine" on the brain.

The reason I ask about Drew is because, He has to know he is going to get paid by the Saints. For him to want to be a FA out-right. That makes be think he is money hunting now. One of those, "Well boys, I got my MVP and Ring now. Time for Drew to get paid!"

Lord, I hope I'm reading too much into this. I pray this lockout ends before I start to hate Pro football.

This is the part that I am questioning Drew on.

"The Boston Globe said that both Manning and Brees were seeking to avoid the use of a franchise tag, which would make Manning an unrestricted free agent after this season, and give Brees the same status after the 2011 season."

Someone explain.....

WOW our bratty sister board is throwing Brees under a bus. Most are siding with the Vikings punter that called Brees a D-bag.

Also Shanle has turned on Brees.

What a sad say it is to be a Saints fan.

So, as it is now, Brees becomes a free agent at the end of this season, right? But with the franchise tag, it would keep him from becoming a free agent. So he wants to make a deal that would prevent the Saints from "tagging" him. Therefore becomming a free agent next year anyway. Am I correct on this so far?
Now, he is about to become one of the highest, or maybe even the highest paid NFL player in history, am I correct?. And it sounds like he may want more?

Someone help me out. Is this correct, or am I thinking about this all wrong?

Punters aren't really football players, so STFU!
