I wish it was like the LA Purchase, that was a steal of a deal.

Man, he sounded pissed. But as expected, handled it like a total class act. I just wish I knew what the &*%$ was going on. Nothing positive at all from listening to that interview, except for the fact that it made me lose my appetite.

You know Drew, this B*** S*** ain't frikkin rocket science. If you really are frustrated with the negotians, fire that ******* you have for a manager, sit down and get a frikkin deal done. Don't give us this "frustrated" crap. You ain't gettin no sympathy from me.

I think I heard him say he and his agent were on the same page.

It will get done.

The ultimate deadline for Brees and the Saints to reach a long-term agreement is July 16. After that, Brees can only sign a one-year deal. When asked if he would sign the one-year, $16.3 million franchise tag offer if a deal isn't reached by then, Brees said, "I'm not even gonna think about that at this point."
