With the season over for the Saints, the hot topic in New Orleans suddenly has become the contract situation of quarterback Drew Brees.

His contract expired the moment the Saints lost to San Francisco on Saturday. Technically, he can become a free agent in March. But itís pretty much a certainty the Saints will re-sign him. If Brees somehow was to leave the Saints, it would be one of the biggest crimes in sports history.

Besides, I donít think Brees wants to leave New Orleans and the Saints donít want to lose him. So why wasnít a deal worked out long ago? Well, there were ongoing talks throughout much of the season, but Brees tabled them later in the year because he didnít want distractions.

On one level, a new deal for Brees will be very complicated because itís going to involve a lot of money and have major implications on the teamís salary-cap status for the duration of the contract. On another level, itís not all that complicated.

They don't need to low ball him. However, they don't need to get ridiculous either.

I say just ask him what he wants. I feel sure he wont throw out a number that is crazy. I feel that he tabeled the talks because both sides are trying to figure out what "won't break the bank". I think Drew really wants what it best not only for himself, but for the Saints as well. JMO.

Sign a long term deal such as 7 years for 100 million with 8 million signing bonus and stretch the money out to where the bulk of it is payed in the last couple years of his contract so that we have enough money to sign other players for superbowl run for the next 3 years or so.

Since league minimum on average is about 500,000 and you need 53 players, and the cap will be approximately 120 million, my math says 52 players at league minimum leaves 94 million per year for Drew.

Get on it Loomis.

Equal or more than the best paid QB in the league, since that's what he is.

He should already have the keys to the dome.

He isn't stupid... they need to get a contract done but you also have to shore up that D to make another run.

It comes down to what is more important to Drew. Lets face it he has all the money he needs already its just a matter of holding the Saints to winning. Get me me a D and I'll sign MF'ers.

His "slot" should fall in somewhere just behind Brady, Manning, but right with Aaron Rodgers...the MVP sure would help his cause; but, the same "Northern" Media-bias we hate will keep that from happening...
