When will the Drew Brees contract get done?

Just a quick question to see when everyone thinks the Drew Brees contract situation will get resolved. Personally, I believe it will happen in late June, but that's just my two cents. I wonder what the actual situation is now. How far apart are the two sides? Still $2 million per year? Who blinks first?

Due to the salary cap, he will play under the Franchise Tag this year.

I don't know when, but there is a deadline for getting long term deals done with players who have received the franchise tag.

I bet not. If he does not have a contract by the deadline, I bet he sits. I hope I'm wrong and he gets signed, but I don't see him playing for "Tag" money.

I can't see Drew playing under the Franchise Tag and I don't see the competitor in him allowing him to miss a year; both sides will have to compromise or one side will have to give in...

The fact that we are treating the best QB in our teams history in a fashion that one has to give in is BS...He , or we , should not have to give in...PAY THE DAMN GUY, without him we are CRAP again.

I disagree! If Brees would have got what he wanted from the very beginning [23 mil per year], we wouldn't have had the cap space to sign Lofton/Hawthorne/Grubbs. Maybe one of those, but not all three, Drew needs to compromise a little bit and we have a very competitive team.

There shouldn't be anymore Defensive breakdowns in the playoffs, like the 49ers and 'Hawks!
