Saints and Drew Brees remain far apart in negotiations

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Yeah, and if Brees went ANYWHERE for more money this city would turn on him like a snake. But we can stop all the talk. He's not going anywhere. He's just going to have to come to the realization that ...

But we can stop all the talk. He's not going anywhere. He's just going to have to come to the realization that making anyone the highest paid player in the league, as fragile as QB health can be, is a STUPID move on the part of the franchise.

Peyton and Brady are Dynasty QB's. We haven't started a Dynasty yet. Colts have been in Playoofs every year Peyton started after his rookie season I believe. I don't think you can shove Brees in with them just even though he's breaking records.

I don't know what Rodgers and Eli are Getting but Brees should get more than them as long as the team doesn't suffer.

Green Bay's team is young which to me means not age but in their contracts. I wouldn't want to be a Green Bay fan when they all are up. There won't be enough Juice to go around.

Really be suprised to see Brees go anywhere until Payton is gone. I think the team knows what they have in Brees and eventually a deal is going to get done. The quarterback position although the most important position is still overpaid in my opinion. It should be the highest paid position if the guy is putting up the numbers but has just gotten to be stupid. Without a supporting cast Brees or anyone else can not do it by himself. I think there should be a cap on every position based on performance and not what some of these OB's have been getting paid.

This is mind blowing. Brees is the best quarterback in ... EVER .. that the Saints have had. It isn't even a question, PAY THE MAN.

It's actually kind of beneficial to both parties right now, to sort of move slow or wait a bit to get the nitty-gritty job done. If Brees can bring home another Lombardi, Super Bowl MVP, Pro Bowl, etc., then he is clearly at a huge advantage for asking for more money. If there was some kind of actual story here where Drew's agent had snapped the briefcase shut and stormed out of a meeting, shouted "THERE WILL BE NO DEAL" at a crowd of reporters' microphones and then flew on the Redskins' private plane straight to the Redskins facility, and Drew's agent was later seen smoking cigars with them, then I'd be absolutely terrified -- but that's not what's happening here so I'm just being patient.

The "powers that be" in the front office better get this figured out and taken care of. We sucked the first 40 years of our existance, partly because of the owners being tight wads and not letting go of the cash it takes to produce a winner. I hope we're not heading back in the same direction.
If I remember right, the new CBA says owners have to spend a certain % of the salary cap. I think it's the mid to high 80% range, to keep owners from doing that.

The Saints FO will get a deal done with Brees, and maybe this will be motivation for him to throw less INTs.

No...no story like that. The only story here is that his coach moved to Dallas...
