Back on topic, I voted training camp.

I don't believe the team needs him right now, we'll make it through the OTA's.

Vilma's lawsuit has had the affect of keeping every news service and crap writer to lay off the team, the Goodell-Bountygate issue is dying down.

I think he will have signed a new contract by the start of preseason, but only if both sides are willing to make compromises.

i know that a lot of people are making a big deal over the contract and him not being signed yet, but tbh when you get up into the 21-25 million dollar range the small difference in what contract to give him can go a long way in terms of signing other players. I think Loomis is handling this well by trying to milk the deal.

I totally agree. What MAJOR (or minor) contract in the NFL between player and General Manager has not turned out "frustrating" for at least the player?

Basically your skill and worth to the team are broken down into dollars and cent$ like a piece of cattle. But that IS the nature of the game and how players want to be represented - through performance based contracts.

Players like Colston etc. were not inquiring about contracts making them the highest paid players in the history of the NFL, therefore their contract negotiations were less cumbersome. Drew needs to understand this, but I also think his recent comments were for publicity to notify Loomis etc. to make contact with him.

Patience by WHO DAT brothers and sisters...

With both Benson and Loomis stating publicly that a long term contract "will get done" this year..... I doubt he will sit out or play under the FT.

I think all the drama may have distracted the FO from negotiations and Brees public statement was more of a "ok guys... back on topic, what are you going to do about me".
