Where can we trade Brees where he can get a ring?

If Dalton loses again this post season, Cincinatti is the perfect team. He will have a great top receiver, two decent number 2 receivers, and a good tightend. He will also have a explosive running attack and be surrounded by a defense full of playmakers.

The other team if Peyton Manning retires is Denver. But Denver has a okay offensive line, but their defensive line is fantastic. Is Brees better in that broncos offense right now than Manning though?

I would not want him going to a team with Brady and Manning in his division as he is destined to lose in those. As well as Luck. He has to go to Cincinatti, Baltimore, or Denver in the AFC.

In the NFC, he could take over for Palmer in Arizona, but thats all I see. Minnesota is probably staying with TB. Detroit has Stafford. I don't think Brees fits Chicago. The redskins need better protection. The eagles need protection. NO to St.Louis and SF!


It's not that Brees is too old for the saints its that we are burnt out and need a new a fresh face.

Trade him to the highest bidder, next year. I don't care about giving him a stupid ring.

Brees's contract make him all but untradeable. A team would have to be able to absorb his contract under the cap. So the prorated amount of his 20 million would have to fit under whoever's cap he was traded to. Most teams have not carried that much space into the season.

For next season, there would be 7.4 million in dead money if he retires.

The you better hope like hell Matt Ryan never gets 1, let alone 2. That will hurt Brees' legacy. It meant Ryan had a better career than Brees and would prove all the naysayers right that Ryan overtook Brees.

Team needs to be started from scratch

Trade Brees for high picks
Fire SP, Loomis and Rob Ryan

Cap mismanagement and awful decision making has crippled this team.

I don't agree with that. Ryan has none of the statistical accomplishments that Brees have. Winning a superbowl is about so much more than just having a good QB. I cringe avery time people bring that up when talking about who is the better QB. Like Trent Dilfer would be a better QB than Dan Marino just because he have a ring.
