No more than a few days ago, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees said his agent the team are in talks for a new contract. Brees is entering the final season of a six-year deal he signed when he arrived in New Orleans in 2006. Seems these talks could take a while though as a source states that a "huge gap" exists between the player and the team. When looking at this "huge gap" between what Brees wants and what the team is willing to pay though; that doesn't mean things have taken a turn for the worst. Merely looking at some of the things that have gone on in the past year will show that if a team wants to keep a player bad enough, things can be worked out.
And the Saints want to keep Drew Brees.

Not even worried about this. His contract will be the new "Louisiana Purchase".

The Louisian Purchase costs $219 million in 2010 dollars, so Benson just may be getting a deal.

The thing that bothers me about this is the principle. Maybe a little corny, but I've read it hear before as well. Drew is the face of this franchise, and he has represented it better than anyone in the history of this team.

Give him a frikken blank check and let him fill it out, dammit!!

Give the man what he wants!! If he ask for 100 million you give him 200. If he asks for the shirt off of your back you give him the pants as well. Name the city and state Drew Orleans Breesiana!!! Pay the man!!! Pay the Man!!! But seriously he deserves every dollar of what we give him and so much more.

OMG there will be 10.000 posts like these until we get a deal done.

The bottom line is we will get a deal done.

I'm officially boycotting all Brees contract posts until we sign him. Anyone with me?
