Trades we'd like to see: Saints send Drew Brees to Jets

Fortunately this will never happen!

Brees, who turns 37 in January, is in the second-to-last year of a five-year deal worth $100 million. He's making $13.5 million this year, but the Jets would only have to come up with half in the event of a deadline trade. The base salary is a staggering $19.75 million next year and the salary cap hit is $30 million -- the highest in the league. By releasing or trading Brees, the Saints would save $20 million. Thinking ahead, the Saints picked quarterback Garrett Grayson in the third round this year, the highest they've drafted a quarterback in the regular draft since Archie Manning in 1971.

Even though I think Garrett Grayson may be the QB of the future, this would be astronomically stupid.

I would call out ESPN (pronounced "sleaze-pen") as the urinal of sports journalism, but that would be an insult to urinals worldwide...

They are almost as bad as CNBC... maybe not, that's a whole other level.

ESPN deals more with politics and peaking into athletes lives now than actual sports. It is the sports equivalent of a tabloid magazine.

I'm sure they would like to see that trade - they have always hated us - and that nonsense would put a dagger through the heart of the franchise.

Be careful linking stupid and the Saints in the same sentenc; the Saints did use all of their draft picks to get one player!

Trade I would like to see: A half arse decent sports network that can get stories right more than 20% of the time, is not full of pompous jerks who think we're tuning in to hear them talk about their little clique, and give more than mere seconds of coverage to most of the teams not in the large markets for ESPN...
