Brees ends Contract talks for now
1 Attachment(s)
"You know, I didn't want it to become a distraction," Brees told The Times-Picayune. "And from the discussions we had, going back and forth, there was no progress really being made. I really wanted to just focus on football.

"It's been tabled for now ... and just hopefully will resume when the time is right."

I hope no one else needs a raise, because after Drew gets his, there won't be enough to go around.

An OVER-paid quarterback is NOT a good thing.

What IS a good thing is that our talent scouts find talent in the low places and then make them feel lucky to be on a winning team. They sell Sense of Belonging. Same way the Marines sell bootcamp! LOL

This really means nothing. Brees isn't leaving and the Saints aren't letting him go.

Don't get sucked into the fabricated drama.

Hey Payton Hills. Learn from Drew. Just end it, go out their and play. You'll get your money.

Saints PAY THE MAN. Drew Brees.

Noting to see here, move along.....a deal will get done so Drew can retire a Saint if not soon then before the start of next season

The Saints have signed Sean Payton for 5 more, believe me...They will get a deal done for Brees. It is the media blowing this out of proportion. The Saints Management know what they have and what they stand to lose without Brees.

Anyone that thinks we will let Drew Brees get away is an absolute idiot.:argue:
There is no way the front office and Rita Benson(yep, she's running the show not Tom) lets him go. No way that they use the franchise tag on him either. This deal will get done long before camp.
I like that Drew stopped negotiations so as not to become a distraction. That's my kind of leader.

It actually gets worse. Its not unheard of this to happen, and sickens me to say, but a franchise like Dallas or Washington can offer Drew way more money than we ever could. I know its not a good thought and would be devastating to our ball club. Just don't want people taking Drew for granted. If he breaks these records or we win a SB, every NFL team who has money will offer him more.He would be even cooler to stay here, considering what he can get on the open market.
So, if he signs please thank the man,lol, send him a letter or do something :)
