Breesí franchise tender comes in at $16.371 million
 
Saints quarterback Drew Brees wants a long-term deal. But if he decides at some point to accept the one-year exclusive franchise tender, Brees will receive $16.371 million for 2012.

Or, in other words, $1.023 million per game.

The number reflects the average of the five highest-paid players at the quarterback position for the current year. (For non-exclusive franchise tenders, the average is based on the prior year.)

Restructurings of contracts by quarterbacks like Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning, and Tom Brady drove down the average. Peyton Manningís $18 million payout from the Broncos in 2012 helped boost the number a bit, even though the cap number is lower than what it would have been if Manning hadnít been cut by the Colts.

If the Saints decide to go year-to-year with Brees, heíll be entitled to $19.645 million in 2013 (i.e., 120 percent of his 2012 pay) and a whopping $28.289 million in 2014 (144 percent of his 2013 pay).

Thatís a total of $64.3 million over three years. Thus, if Brees currently is looking for an average payout of more than $21.43 million per year over the next three years (which equates to $64.3 million over three years), it makes no financial sense for the Saints to offer him a long-term deal.

Florio is dim at best. Not "financialy"? Try selling Jerseys with Daniel on the back. Try making the playoffs with out Brees. Try filling the Super Dome with out Brees. Try doing a lot of things with out Brees on the team.

That article does not factor where the team is if Brees walks and goes to another team.

This article is so dumb, I HAD to comment. Brees is not looking for just more money. He wants long term security. A long term deal with a nice signing bonus, in the event that he gets hurt and the Saints decide(Like the Chargers did) to part ways with him. He would never stay around for that 2nd or 3rd Franchise tender. People get paid to write this crap? I missed my calling.

We've offered him just that...

TWICE!!!

He wants to prison-rape our Saints long term, it so obvious.

He wants to be paid well.......Nicks had to leave to get that........The FO assigns a value to a player and will not over pay for a player. Not yet anyway.

Leave enough to sign the complimentary players to win another championship and Drew will get all the endorsements and Oprah time he and family will need...
