Saints have "resumed dialogue" with unsigned franchise player Drew Brees

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Saints have "resumed dialogue" with unsigned franchise player Drew Brees, but the sides remain roughly $2 million-per-year apart in long-term contract negotiations.

Brees is missing the Saints' current mandatory minicamp. "I'm told by a source close to the stalemate in negotiations that dialogue between Saints GM Mickey Loomis and Tom Condon, the agent for Brees, has resumed, but so far has not resulted in any substantial progress," Werder reported. "... The two sides are believed to be about $2 million-a-year apart. And I'm told that Brees is committed to his position because, at 33, he recognizes this could be the final contract of his NFL career. That there are no guarantees beyond that."

ESPN report... so take it for what it's worth.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Better than not talkin at all I guess. I figured they would start talkin again at least a few weeks befor July 16th. Negotiations of this magnitude seem to not get done untill like Days or sometimes hours before a deadline.

2 million dollars one way or the other is not enough more to cripple the team. I say give it too him.Funny how the Patriots made Brady the highest paid QB and it didn't cripple their team. This crippling the team theory is nonsense.

Benson should give Drew anything he wants, he is a beast and worked wonders for the city of New Orleans.

How many championships have they won since Tom's big pay day? That said......with the new deals for draft picks, I think it can be done. We can re-vamp alot cheaper through the draft than we could, say...2 years ago.

Come on, someone start actually negotiating. They are going to meet somewhere in the middle. Who blinks first will determine whether it's higher or lower.

Well they started dialogue again so someone blinked. Someone had to have the notion of bending one way or another for them to resume talks.
