Saints made new offer to Brees last Friday | ProFootballTalk

If the Saints and quarterback Drew Brees currently are truly close to getting a deal done, they’ve been close for nearly a week.

As reported by multiple other outlets, the Saints have recently made Brees a new offer. According to a source with knowledge of the negotiations, the team made the new offer on Friday.

If the goal of the Friday offer was to get Brees to show up for a three-day mandatory minicamp that opened Tuesday, it didn’t work. The source also said that Brees’ camp has yet to respond.

In theory, agent Tom Condon could call G.M. Mickey Loomis on Friday (or, you know, right now) and say, “We accept.” But that’s not how it usually works. Deadlines drive the final positions. With the offseason program winding down, there’s no reason for either side to move toward its actual bottom line because the other side will wait until the eleventh hour and then squeeze for more.

So with the deadline for doing a multi-year deal coming on July 16, that remains the date to watch. Something also could happen after the late June hearing before Stephen Burbank on the question of whether Brees would be entitled to a 20-percent raise or a 40-percent raise under the franchise tag in 2013, if both sides sufficiently fear losing the $3.9 million that hangs in the balance by waiting for Burbank to issue a decision.

Either way, there’s currently every reason to believe that Brees and the Saints will have a long-term deal in place by the middle of July.

I'm no one.
Who are you?

Just go through and look at a selection of Saints stories on nola.com -- almost every single one of them has a link to somewhere else as its source. "So-and-so is reporting that"..."Fujita said in an interview in the Cleveland paper that..." "League sources have announced"...almost none of what the TP or nola publishes is new or "scoop" type stuff!

This is why the TP is cutting back the newspaper to almost nothing -- they have almost nobody doing real reporting anymore, just cut-and-paste from other sources. It's like a glorified blog now.

The details of the story of the bounty crap and the Brees contract stalemate has consistently been broken by national media, not the TP. Florio has his own sources, which include Triplett and the local guys, but he also has also others that are far different from what Triplett has access to.

But -- I agree with you that Fox 8 has an obvious inside line on the Saints.

Everybody else was totally blindsided by it, but it only took Lee Zurik like half an hour in the back room on the phone, to find out the exact identity of the person who was spreading the ridiculous "wiretapping" story around. Zurik's reporting on that piece was awesome!
While this may be true most of the time in this case the local guys definitely broke the story first. ESPN and the national guys disputed the reports that were made yesterday by the local guys until today. The local guys stuck to their story.
