No good reason for Saints or Brees to blink until July

In the offseason of their discontent, we’re inching closer to the beginning of the Saints’ organized team activities (OTAs).

They start May 22, and there is no indication that the team and QB Drew Brees are making progress in negotiations on a long-term contract. They apparently have not had substantial conversations in quite some time.

PFW correspondent Mike Triplett, a Saints beat writer for The Times-Picayune, reported Thursday that talks between the two sides “have been practically non-existent now for more than a month.”

Brees has already missed the first few weeks of the club’s offseason conditioning program, and it’s possible he won’t be there when the team gathers for practice on the 22nd.

No Breesus in Nawlins for the start of OTAs? I realize it would be a discouraging sign for some, but pardon me if I don’t gasp.

As long as Brees is in the fold by the time training camp gets under way in late July, I don’t see much reason for Saints fans to worry, and I don’t expect the Saints or Brees to allow this situation to explode into something that is really cause for concern

I have a new theory -- which I am happy to have people throw rocks and garbage at me for, and be angry about, I don't like the sound of it any more than you do, but I worry about it...but I have been suspecting that, maybe Condon knows that Loomis is a "lame duck" so to speak -- he knows that Loomis' suspension is coming up, he knows what Loomis' "number" or offer to Drew is, he can read and figure out what the Saints cap number is as well as anybody, and so he is deliberately waiting for Loomis' suspension to kick in, hoping that when it gets to the season and Game 1, and Drew is still sitting, the fans will be freaking out, Benson will be freaking out, EVERYONE will be insane, and maybe just maybe, Condon hopes that whoever takes over for Loomis during his suspension at the beginning of the season will PANIC, just a total crisis meltdown, cave-in, and throw all kinds of money at Drew, in desperation, once the "blank" really hits the fan and there's no Loomis around to control or watch over things. You have to think that Condon knows that Loomis is a seasoned master negotiator; the guy who is coming in temporarily after Loomis, maybe not so much. If I was Condon, and was looking to screw the Saints in favor of my client, I'd rather deal with THAT GUY and not "The Loomis." It is really a monkey wrench in the whole thing that I think could have effects we are not even thinking of.

Don't think it is a matter of waiting to screw the Saints. Sad it has to come down to the 11th hour to get something done. For this I do blame the Saints for not handling up of this well before this came about. Noone likes to overpay but lets be for real he should get what he has earned and it should be more than Vick got for christ sakes.
