Drew Brees would 'absolutely' extend Saints contract if asked

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees said he would "absolutely" extend his contract if approached by the team to do so.

Brees, 36, has one year left on his contract with a cap hit of $30 million. His $19.75 million base salary becomes guaranteed on Feb. 10. By extending his contract, the Saints can relieve some of the salary cap burden.

Brees said Sunday that he wants to stay a Saint, even with the uncertainty surrounding coach Sean Payton and his coaching future.

"I'm very hopeful that we're all gonna be here and prepare ourselves to make a run at it here over the next few years," Brees said.

Brees said he would have no regrets ending his career as a Saint, even if the team doesn't win another Super Bowl.

I like the sound of that. If it happens it might give us enough room to pick up a decent FA Guard or DT.

Definitely deserves it, in the midst of a bad season, Brees had one of his most productive.

Let the man retire a saint.

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

He said the exact same thing last year.

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.

I would wait to see what happens with Payton first, then go from there.
