REJOICE WHO DATS!!!
 
Drew Brees: 'I'd never sit out the season' - New Orleans Saints Football NFL News - NOLA.com

"In an interview with ESPN's "Outside the Lines," Drew Brees said that regardless of the circumstances surrounding his contract negotiations with the New Orleans Saints, he would not sit out the entire 2012 season. Brees has until July 16 to sign a contract extension with the Saints or he would be forced to play under the one-year franchise offer of around $16.3 million or he could decide to sit out some or all of the season.


New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who is involved in a protracted contract negotiation with his team, said Tuesday in an interview with ESPN that he would never sit out the season.
"I'd never sit out the season," Brees said Tuesday. "I love the game too much."

That doesn't mean he won't sign a 1 year contract and request a trade.

I wonder if he knows something about his contract that is giving him more confidence to make such a comment. Maybe they really are closer to a deal. I love the words, but still want to see him sign a LT deal before it's even an issue.

If I were the Saints & Brees, I would keep the negotiations under wraps (even if the final details were completed weeks ago).

Once Der Furher releases information regarding the appeals, I would have a prepared release for a news conference from the team's press area for the organizations response within an hour of the appeals decision:

LIVE - Brees contract announcement and signing....

I do not think the PR aspect of the Brees' contract is underestimated by the Saints, Brees, or Condon.

If one could move beyond the straight forward ridiculousness of that statement and apply logic one would realize that no other NFL team has to cap space to absorb a trade amounting to $20 million plus as a 2012 hit.

Have you considered Xanax?

Yep. Not going to be optimistic until a long term deal gets done.
