Me too, If Brees' agent continues to want to rape the franchise instead of agreeing to a deal that benefits both sides then adios Drewboy... Go rape some other team.

I've said it before and I'll say it again... I'd be very shocked if they have to franchise Brees, because that solution would not serve neither sides' interests.

I'm going to let this drama play out, but if we use the tag on Brees everything gets interesting.

I never thought we'd be 5 days away from the Franchise Tag deadline with Drew still unsigned. If we have to use the Tag on Drew this could be a rough offseason.

If we do Franchise Drew I'll be very curious to see what this organization does. Do we keep working on a deal and risk losing out on free agents? Do we put Drew's contract negotiations on the back burner and pursue other free agents? I'm hoping we get something done before Monday because if we do Franchise Drew both sides lose.

This would be a disaster for so many reasons. Franchise tag on Brees = No Nicks, probably no Colston for next year.

I'm trying not to rush to judgement about my favorite player and my favorite team but this is really disheartening...borderline depressing; I thought everyone involved was better than this...

Likewise... very unnerving. I'm keeping the faith and not jumping to conclusions but if Drew is franchised then we're going to take a step back next year. No more Nicks and probably Colston too. We'll probably be able to move on without Colston but not being able to franchise Nicks is going to hurt.

Drew wanted to get rid of the Franchise Tag as a part of the new CBA. Now he might have to live bye it. Plus the money drops this year to about 15 million. Drew go see what your Agent is doing.

Just don't think Drew will let this happen. He wants another ring and we are primed for it this season at home.
