Re: Will Drew be traded at the end of the year?

Only teams that can absorb a cap hit like Drews are far and few in between. A contender willing to redo Drews contract and willing to turn the keys over to the house in the next few drafts. A team that feels the window is there and only thing missing is a QB. I have no takers right off the top of my head during the year. last year of his contract in the 2016 off season seems logical for any team to pick up the phone.

But if Drew is to leave the saints, I can see it with him at the end of the 2016 season. That is when he can pick the team to chase the ring if the saints are in a official rebuild mode still. Take the comp pick and part ways with everyone's blessings and thanks.

Hate to see the saints pull and Archie on Drew

My thinking exactly, I don't think a team would trade for that cap-hit. Only chance would be if he renegotiated the contract first.

He is 4-11 in potential 4th quarter comebacks in the last 3 years. This would include not getting a 1st down that would kill a game.

Either it's him or us having too much expectation.

Brady and Manning are better. Seems like a few others are too.

If there is nobody getting open, there is nobody to throw to, doesn't matter how good Drew is or isn't.

Re: Will Drew be traded at the end of the year?

Now that the cat is out the bag about his shoulder bothering him, I doubt that very many teams will be lining up to grab Brees at top dollar....it would certainly be a heck of a personal gamble, for a GM to risk his job to take a chance on Brees and his surgically repaired shoulder, at his age, when it's acknowledged that it bothered him the past two years. It's not 2006 anymore folks. I always feared that Drew's shoulder would give out before the rest of him did; that his shoulder would decide to hang up the pads on its own, before the rest of Drew was ready to give up his cleats or helmet or chin strap. That'd be really sad if it were to happen that way. I'm not ready to pronounce total doom on the whole season yet, it's one day at a time, but the day of reckoning may be closer than we think.

He can't be traded. His contract insures that. No way any team can absorb $27M+.

Half of Drew is better than half the QBs out there.

I wonder if Drew will even be playing by years end.

I just read a RUMOR on another site that Drew's injury is rotator cuff related. And unfortunately it was from a highly respected poster.
