Drew Brees would 'absolutely' extend Saints contract if asked

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Brees' contract could not be extended before this year or it would have killed us financially. Now is the time. Brees isn't going anywhere. And hopefully neither is Payton....

Re: Drew Brees would 'absolutely' extend Saints contract if asked

I want him to retire a Saint too. I was telling my wife the last night that I wouldn't care if we won another SB with him, sometimes a Legend is all we need and I want him to have all records and do it in black & gold. Also told her we will be going to Kansas City next year to watch him play. WhoDat!!!

If Drew goes we have nothing. Just extend his contract already.

He wants to stay. We can make it happen pretty easily.

I think its all part of the negotiation process that Loomis has mastered.

I expect Drew will get a new 5 year contract, which in reality is a 3 year extension disguised in a new 5 year contract.
Ehh... I don't know about Loomis being a master of negotiating. We pay top dollar for pretty much every significant player on our roster. I would say the agent is winning in every case.

The case of extending Drew is, in my opinion, all about what kind of belief they have in Drew going forward. If they think he's got enough left to play at a high level for more than just a year or two, then I think they'll go ahead and get it done. What happens with the rest of the roster is anyone's guess. Mickey has been very sloppy in a number of ways.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Drew Brees would 'absolutely' extend Saints contract if asked

I think we will open our morning papers during Mardi Gras season in a couple of weeks from now, and read that Brees has in fact been extended. It's not gonna happen right now, too soon, but it is definitely already in the Inbox on Loomis' desk. In fact, I would literally not be surprised if they already had a broad outline agreed to, with a boilerplate type draft thing already drawn up and printed out, sitting in the desk drawer, with blank spaces for the numbers, and Loomis, Drew, and Tom Condon could sit down and tweak the final details, easily plugging in the numbers over a steak dinner one night, when there's not so much other crazy activity going on!
