Buzz builds that Brees could play under franchise tag
 
The upset of the year could be coming before training camps even open.

With the Saints and quarterback Drew Brees less than a week away from the deadline for doing a long-term deal, there’s a growing belief in some league circles that the lingering impasse won’t be resolved — and that Brees will ultimately play in 2012 under the one-year, $16.371 million franchise tag.

I hope it doesn't get to that, if it does then we could be in trouble next offseason if he wants a trade

After all the 'I want to retire as a New Orleans Saint' quotes we have heard and read from Brees, it would be a PR disaster for him to then request a trade next year; especially since the Saints have made three offers to make him the highest paid QB in NFL history.

I personally think Brees will sign his contract on July 16th; I have no idea why he would wait until then to sign it if he knows he is going to sign it anyway.

Perhaps, as someone posted, he has been meeting with SP and game-planning for the season; I don't see SP jeopardizing his return to coaching by meeting with Brees and drawing the ire of Kommisar Goodell.

Brees says he is not playing under a franchise tage but then says he is not holding/sitting out. Those 2 statements don't go together if a player wants more money.

I feel that Brees made the 'not holding out' for the fans benefit, and he is intentionally not signing until the deadline to make a point.

Maybe Loomis is finalizing one last big FA signing and THAT is what is holdng things up.

But the one thing I do know is, without Brees, the Saints will have a zero % chance of playing in any Super Bowls in the near future. I am not trying to knock Chase Daniel, but letting Brees walk and pinning the Saints future on Daniel would be like jilting Dolly Parton for Little Orpan Annie!

Woah... for a moment there I thought you were talking about a different Little Annie, and thought to myself, "hmmm, I don't see anything wrong with that trade-off" :)

If he does, it will be his last year with us, period. I don't believe it will come to it. I am gonna watch my kids baseball tournament this weekend and when i wake up Monday morning, there will be deal in place.
