I am thinking that both sides are trying to figure out what is best for Drew and what is best for the Saints. To be honest, it would not surprise me in the least if Drew was trying to help Loomis figure out how they can keep Nicks and Colston.

JMHO..... I think Drew is a Saints "Homer".

This deal is gonna get done. Drew is a Saint for life.

I agree with Sapper.

and let's not forget the Peyton factor. His salary skews what a top 3 QB should make, so that helps the Saints' leverage a little.

I'd love to see Loomis get creative-- back end a deal like the NHL does, or have the Saints give the Brees Dream Foundation $1 mill a year for the next 20 years. Anonymously, of course.

Brees & Loomis identified that there were too many moving parts in this deal (Nicks, Colston, et al.) and that's most likely the motive for postponing talks until after the season.

My advice is to relax - the deal will get done. Once it's done the rest will follow.

Fortunatley Drew isn't holding out for money, because you know Jerry Jones/Dan Snyder would start a bidding war for him if the Saints lo-balled him.

Moving Parts?

Don't forget that the defense has to be worked as well - you have non-favorable, existing contracts with Will Smith, Roman Harper, Sedrick Ellis. Those contracts must be reworked as well.

Then you know the Saints have to address some free agent needs on Defense, and possibly OT...

Yeah, the Front Office has a tremendous opportunity - let's hope they don't screw the pooch...

drew is looking at the big picture i am sure. i would not be surprised to see two if not all three deals announced within 24 hrs of each other.

micky talking with one agent is one thing but three agents how are also talking amongst themselves is another

There's no doubt in my mind Brees will sign with us. However, I am getting a little anxious. If Brees is not signed by March 5th (the last day to Franchise a player) the Saints will most likely Franchise him so he can't become a free agent. This will cause a domino effect with Colston and Nicks. I think the Saints plan on using the Franchise Tag on Nicks so he can't become a free agent. They will still try to work out a long term deal but this avoids a bidding war. If the Saints are still working on Drew's deal into free agency I think there is a good chance we lose both Nicks and Colston. If Brees is signed before March 5th, I think there's a good chance both Colston and Nicks come back. We really can't do much this offseason until Brees is signed, that's why I think some fans are getting a little anxious.

Jeez, this is pathetic.

Is anyone really dumb enough to think this deal won't eventually get done?

Whiney little spoiled brats.
