Exclamation Brees, Saints playing franchise tender chicken

As the Saints launch their Organized Team Activities without the man who organized the teamís lockout activities a year ago, league insiders and observers continue to scratch their heads regarding the failure of the Saints and quarterback Drew Brees to work out the details of a long-term deal.

As best we can tell, the current impasse arises from one fundamental disagreement: the Saints believe that Brees eventually will sign the one-year, $16.371 million exclusive franchise tender, and Brees currently has no plan to do so.

The Saints management are setting themselves up for a major Follie if they think this is going to happen because it is not. I do not blame Brees for this. It is time for the organization to ante up and not just in money terms per sey. Do you think Brees is dumb enough to make the same mistake he made in San Diego. I think not. Even if Brees did get hurt they have a chance to make him a part of the team in the future even if it is not on the field and they need to look at it on those terms. Who would not love to have Brees around as a coach or an executive. I for one do not what to see this happen but I would rather see him sit out. Think it is a matter of principle to him now and I hope they are not so shortsighted to see this could happen. If this does happen we will not see Brees in a Saints uniform again period.
