A rumor circulated yesterday that the Saints were offering 20-21 and Condon wanted 24+. Then this came out today.

That's where.

And I'm just making a nonchalant comment... don't read too much into it dude. I'm not shooting the messenger.

I'm with ya papz... no internet drama here lol. I'm just frustrated with this whole thing like everyone else. I think this situation with Brees, Nicks and Colston is bad for every Saints fan's mental health!

We all know the Saints don't leak any information so if there is a report saying they are 5million apart it can only come from Condon. I really don't believe Drew would be this greedy. If Condon is really playing this game it would not surprise me if Drew doesn't leave his services. Drew can't say in public on record that he is trying to make a deal that will allow the saints the ability to sign the other top FA then turn around and try to break the bank. The fans will turn on him and I'm one that will. Drew is the best thing that has happen to the Saints and New Orleans but he is not worth 20 million a year. And if the reports are true about Loomis' comments, I kind of agree. Drew doesn't have the resume like Brady or Manning and doesn't deserve a larger contract than the two of them. Just my opinion.

Exactly... a rumor. If no-one wants to believe that Loomis could be offering Drew "average QB" money then we probably shouldn't believe that they are offering him 20 million a year.

C'mon Cole.
Are you trying to tell us Brees wants 33% more than BRADY? You can't even use Manning as a measuring stick anymore, so don't even figure that in

He wont get it. He knows that would gut the team and he is too much of a compeditor to let that happen. He has stated many times that his deal hinges on keeping core players on the team.

21 Million, take it or we franchise Brees.

So much for that crap Drerw spewed about wanting to keep the team together.

No way Cole is correct.
I'll believe it when it happens, until then I have a hard time with it.
