No movement on Brees talks - Brees has had highest paid player in NFL deal on table since 6/11/12

Per Larry Holder

"With a week remaining until the July 16 deadline, there's been no movement on the Drew Brees contract talks, via a league source.

Brees has had a deal on the table for weeks to make him highest paid player in the NFL, via league source: "Ball is in (Brees') court."

Three times Brees has had deals on the table to make him the highest paid player: leading up to 2011 season, March 2012 and June 11, 2012."

For the first time, this has me worried. I know he'll play with the tag, but if this happens this could be the last year he's a Saint

Makes you wonder why everyone keeps repeating the same line, "pay the man". I don't know what Brees and his agent are using to calculate what they think he deserves, but offering highest paid player deals three times sounds like what he deserves. Yet they want more. I'm sorry but there have to be limits, no matter what you've achieved. And yes, I get it, the agent's job is to milk as much as they can out of you, but this is absurd. I've long said a deal will get done, and still believe that, but I would have thought the money he's been offered would have been enough.

Dang Condon has got us by the balls for sure.

I think this further corroborates the theory he's in contact with Sean Payton.
I'm as nervous as anyone else and wish this would just get done.

He wants "more" up front. I don't blame him and won't, as I've said, until he fails to sign the deal. I don't blame him for holding out until the last second ticks off the clock, but not a second beyond that.

And I am also in line with the theory that he and Sean are probably communicating and that may have a lot to do with why he's waiting until the last minute to sign.

There's a reason why the Patriots have tried to stay away from Tom Condon players for years.

Is this the same "league source" that leaked all the OVERWHELMING evidence regarding a Bounty System involving 22-27 Saints players?

You sure it is Condon...

The league has to approve any contract that gets agreed to. The grievance regarding the franchise tag could have a few additional clauses that either side wants to add.
