Exclamation Article: Brees' contract talk could get ugly

With a contract that will expire in just a few weeks and with no progress made during the 2011 season toward a new one and with a record-setting season in his pocket and with a late-game performance against the 49ers that should have been enough to deliver the first road playoff win in franchise history, quarterback Drew Brees and the Saints continue to be on a collision course for awkwardness and ugliness in 2012.

In a season-ending press conference held Tuesday, coach Sean Payton said what hes been saying for months: Brees will be back.

Its really sad to see, Florio is really reaching for straws here and his points make little to no sense. I thought the salary cap increased each year due to the tv contract they signed so why is it every idiot that gets paid to spew garbage with a computer keep saying that there isn't enough money to go around for all 4 of these guys. Hey Florio stick to sucking up to Dan Patrick and actually do some research before you try to write a shock and awe article

This is the biggest reach for a story I've ever seen. No matter what else happens, Brees will get a deal long term. There is no doubt in my mind that Drew Brees will retire a Saint.
