Don't get me wrong. I like Danny's stuff. He's one of my favorites. But the Brees contact stuff will probably go back and forth most of the season.

The end result is all I care about. The back and forth is annoying to me.

I just say be resonable. Don't try to one up the last guy in paycheck. That's how we got into the rookie pay mess. Let Philly and Indy burn all that cash on their QB's. Drew deserves a nice paycheck but to give him a blank check and hurt the potential of having money left to sign key players is like trading away your entire draft for one player.

Drew is the francise but you need a team around him for success. Does he need to be the highest paid player on the team..yes. Highest in the NFL....not really.

Agreed. Giving somebody to big a chunk of the cap is really just hurting the chances of building a solid football team.

We should not only be paying Brees whatever he wants we should be Building a Large Statue of him somewhere by the Mississippi River.
No other QB, wait scratch that, No other PERSON (period) has done so much for the entire state of Louisiana, He's not only given us what generations of Saints fans ever wanted he has also given generations after a gift that will continue to give with the Brees Foundation, We have something special that is a rarity in the NFL, you do not let something like that go or even worry about stuff like money, he seems as focused as ever and as potent as he's been since we stole him away with broken arm coming to a broken city, he's literally embodied what the city of New Orleans had to go through and it's recovery and resurgence back, we have a sweet connection with #9..

Im on #TEAMBREES side..
I think Brees value is much more than Vick's or Payton Manning. Pay him and name a street after him!
