Report: Drew Brees may skip Saints training camp

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He's nothing without SEAN PAYTON, and knows it. Maybe that's the source of his apprehension. Alaska...

Hopefully this report is just a move on the chess board. The level of frustration is palpable in us all, we just need to try to chill until July 16 and at that point see where this is.

That's not fair to say... Drew is way more than capable to run Sean's offense by himself. Not to mention Carmichael was calling the plays for most of last season and he's been with Drew ever since San Diego...

If Payton were here this would be a moot point. If all else fails next year we take the best available backup with potential and let Payton coach him up. Drew would be missed but so would 1/5 of our cap.

I think Drew Brees would be a top 10 QB on just about any team.

I think Sean Payton could take a top 15 QB and make him a top 5 QB.

The combination of Brees/Payton results in top 3.

I agree with Mardigras9 and everyone else on this page. Thing is, no training camp....this da mn thing is frustrating.
How can DB be ready for QWB without training camp. Nevermind, yeah, he is that good, but training camp. Training. Getting trained. Teaching the team how to read him, he reads them, plays, etc.

"The Saints have already offered Brees the richest contract in league history, surpassing the $19.2 million per year that the Denver Broncos gave quarterback Peyton Manning ... "

It would be stunning upset if Drew Brees' deal with New Orleans Saints isn't done by July 16 - New Orleans Saints Football NFL News - NOLA.com

I love Drew Brees, and I want him in New Orleans. That said, we're TRYING to pay the man ...

I am beginning to get a feeling that after this is through, we are going to see a New England-like attitude in the Saints franchise after this deal is done. You know the rumor where New England and Bellichick have been said to be in a sort of "cold war" with Tom Condon, won't talk to him and reputedly won't make deals with any Condon clients for their team, basically "if Condon is the guy's agent, then we're not interested in that player, we'll pass and sign somebody else." I could EASILY see the Saints adopting the same type of philosophy, after all this is over with and Drew is signed. So we're in the home stretch here, folks.

From reports: latest update is that the $ amount is settled, and the isue is guaranteed money.

As I have said before... The apprehension of the front office is because they are in waters above their head, they do not have the stomach for this, never have they has to put ink on paper with a talent like Drew... its not that they can not afford it, they can... its that they are scared they will guarantee and lose on that.....

If you want the big frikken reward... You HAVE to take the big frikken risk!
