Brees: Saints will thrive in wake of bounty penalties
 
1 Attachment(s)
CARLSBAD, Calif. - Drew Brees is still sticking up for his team and says it will continue to thrive despite coach Sean Payton's season-long suspension for his role in the New Orleans Saints' bounty system.

The quarterback says he doesn't condone a bounty structure, but added there's a difference between pay-for-performance and pay-for-injury, "and I'd say what we've been accused of in regards to pay-for-injury is not the case."

Brees spoke at La Costa Resort & Spa while promoting his Drew Brees Celebrity Championship, which will be played in May.

Brees sidestepped his unhappiness at being slapped with the franchise tag. He declined to say whether he'd skip offseason workouts that start Monday.

Drew is the man and I have no doubt he will be at off season practice

SIGN a contract and we WILL thrive.

He wont be at OTA's on the 16.....if he planned on being there he would have said so.

I'm betting he won't be there.

You know what? I know I'm gonna get a lot of flack for saying this, but I got to get this off my chest.

I don't think Drew wants to be here, anymore. I fully think he would be happy playing for the CFL's worst team if the would pay him 30 million a year.

I'm sick of the "This is what happens in contract talks" crap. If he is the leader of this team; BE A FREAKIN LEADER! If he doesn't want to be here, get the hell outta here. Drew has too take some responsibility in all of this contract crap. It's HIS career, not Condon's. I am starting to worry that my opinion of him is going to drop; and I don't want that to happen. It is starting to p*$$ me off.

I think if Brees is talking about next season, and including himself in the "we", it is a very good thing.

No flack here. I understand your thinking because nothing has happened and it is really very unusual for a guy of his stature to play out his last year without a contract...so, a long time ago I started thinking, "Hmmmm?"

I keep reminding everybody that him and some other guys had a lawsuit against the NFL about the franchise tag...unless I am mistaken.

Isn't it possible that Drew is so upset with the NFL that he is ready to get back into court with them and maybe win a lawsuit that would be worth a lot more than even his contract would be this year?

Remember...when it comes to Drew and Payton, most everything I post is just speculation because nobody really knows what is going on in those two's heads.
