Benson trumps everybody in this and he said it would be worked out. Probably not a good idea to take someone who owns stealerships for his word but I'll give him a pass this time. Brees is one of the best things that ever happened to Benson.

If he sits out, does he get paid?

Benson has seats to sell and advertisers to answer to. We were a heartbeat away from being the "Somewhere other than New Orleans" Saints.

I still don't like Benson.

Not at all. Brees isn't going to lose 16+ million over 3 or 4 million. He will be in camp.

At some point soon, we're going to have to replace Drew, that's just a fact of life. We may have squandered the opportunity to draft or trade for his replacement over the last couple years, but it has to be done. We're being held for ransom now because we didn't make an earlier effort to draft his replacement sooner than later so now we're paying for it because Drew has all the leverage. As tired as I am of hearing about how poor multi-millionaire Bree's isn't getting what he thinks he's worth (Hey Drew, there's millions of us out here that ain't gettin what we think we're worth either) we still don't know what has been offered and turned down. For a QB that has thrown 22-23 INT's the last couple years and cost us PO position and PO games, I'd say about 500k more than Manning or Brady whoever is the highest paid.

I'm starting to since he filed for an arbitrator. I know he was just curious as to the specifics of the new CBA but still. Him just wondering about it is enough to make it a possibility. I hope to God he doesn't sit out but if he did I'd still be excited for the season and I would like to see what chase can do

I've been saying for a couple of months that if an agreement cannot be reached, he will not sign his tag. He will sit.

Hope Beastmode is right about Benson. We still need Brees now to have a legit shot. I still think Brees has four or five years left so I am not sure a really good quarterback is going to sit in the wings that long waiting for a shot. That is the problem we have here. The really good ones dont come around that often and when they are proven winners they get scooped up fast. Why look elsewhere when you have one already ? Best you can do is get a good serviceable backup that could hold down the fort until your guy gets back. I have been saying he wit sit but hope he doesn't now with this francise thing going on now and if it goes up to 23Mil I think he may sign. What a number ? I hope the team can get something done so it doesn't come down to this
