Unhappy Brees doesn't intend to sign franchise-tag deal

New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees does not intend to sign the franchise-tag deal offered by the Saints, CBSSports.com reported Monday.

WIST-AM in New Orleans, citing sources in the Brees camp, reported that the record-setting quarterback is "livid" that he received the franchise tag.

..
Brees and the Saints can still negotiate a long-term deal, but if one is not reached by July 15 then Brees must either sign the franchise-tag deal or hold out.

The franchise figure for quarterbacks in 2012 currently stands at between $16 million and $17 million, but that could change depending on what happens with any potential Peyton Manning deal.

The Saints' decision to use their tag on Brees adds another twist to what has been a surprisingly contentious round of negotiations between the team and its quarterback, who broke Dan Marino's NFL single-season passing record two months ago and led New Orleans to its only Super Bowl championship two years ago.

If he doesn't sign it put Chase in and lets move forward.

Looking at Brees stats with the Chargers compared to with the Saints I wonder how much Paytons system have to do with his success.

Somethin' just doesn't sound right here. There has got to be more to this story than money.

Easy way to fix being "livid". Just sign the damn contract offer they gave you. It includes more money than you could ever spend.

Lost a lot of respect for Drew this offseason, he only has himself to blame for getting the franchise tag by turning down our first offer

... then he sits I guess. Too bad, but the world/league/team can't revolve around one player. Wish it could, wish it could be Drew, but the reality of the situation is the Saints will play the 2012/13 season with or without him.

Hope he has a change of heart.

drew sitting really isn't an option either- it will leave us with 15-16 million in unused cap, and our qb will be brady quinn or rex grossman

Personally I blame the Saints for letting this monster grow like it has. The deal should have been done seasons ago at least two seasons. They were playings the odds like I stated before and continue to do so. I knew there was a real good chance thet they were going to tag Brees. Usually after hard feelings like this it is hard to mend the fences. Brees will have to accept this in the end I just find it hard to think he will actually sit out this year. If he does sit then I agree that some personal relationships between Brees and management have deteriorated to the point that Brees does not want to play for them anymore. Then as stated we have to move on. I think there are a lot of people who do not want the Saints in the hometown superbowl.

What is livid?
It's a media word that helps sell news, and stir up the wires,
and set the fans on fire. Its the other bookend to the word "bounty".
As if Drew didn't see the tag on the table since mid-season last year.
C'mon everybody.
Drew and Peyton and some other guy were holding up the talks last year
with franchise tag litigation. It didn't go away then and he hates that he has
to wear that collar (with the leash).
He will try to save face and do what he said, or in this case - not do.
I kind of opened my mouth and asked, "What could be worse?", "What else can go wrong?".
It's all my fault.
