Brees livid about being tagged...
 
1 Attachment(s)
Drew Brees is "livid" about being franchise tagged and not receiving a long-term contract, according to WIST-AM in New Orleans. The radio station cites sources in the Brees camp that he will not sign the franchise tag deal. Brees and the Saints have until July 15 to hammer out a long-term deal. If a deal isn't struck, Brees must sign the franchise tag deal or hold out.

Until I hear those words come from Brees himself, well, call me a skeptic!

Yep, lets wait until he's quoted as being 'livid'...and if he is quoted as being 'livid' then color me unsympathetic.

He can hardly be "livid" about it since it was his agent who forced the Saints' hand in tagging him, because they couldn't afford the front loaded $23M/year contract.

I doubt that the report is true.

I don't care... Bree's made himself the face of the league being involved in the labor agreement so he only has himself to blame.

Look at it from a business perspective... why in the hell would you NOT use the tag on Bree's you get him for something in the ball park of 16 millions and save 7 to 8 million of cap space. Makes perfect sense to me.

I just can't see him being unhappy with the situation unless he is pissed at his agent, lol.

Besides... completely honest here after this year... we move on from Brees are better seriously be looking at his replacement... He's 34 already. Its going to be all down hill for him.

I love one of those comments after the article. Trade Drew to Indy and draft his replacement. DO IT.

Now that is the difference between him being able to spend $49,000 a day and $63,000 a day.....

This is the beginning of the end of the supremacy guys... I know, I know... Overreacting, blowing things out of proportion, blah, blah, blah. The ****'s hit the fan and I'm mortified by the way our organization has handled every aspect of things.

No I agree with you to a degree.

This is an all or nothing year. If we don't win it then totally scrap the team and start rebuilding. Bree's isn't getting any younger.

I am not going to believe this until I hear him say it on live tv, followed by a full on temper tantrum.

If he is really livid, I am really confused. I mean, what did he think we were going to do if he via his agent won't negotiate a bit? They pretty much set this up.
