Is Brees Considered "Greedy" If He Decides Against Extension?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Greedy. No. I don't think there's a greedy bone in his body from all I can tell. Business smart? Pretty sure of that much. I don't care how much I've made. I want to make more. That's human nature, not ...

Greedy. No. I don't think there's a greedy bone in his body from all I can tell. Business smart? Pretty sure of that much.

I don't care how much I've made. I want to make more. That's human nature, not greed.

Why would he turn down an extension when he's already said he doesn't want to play anywhere else?

What does he want more: the money or a better chance at winning another superbowl? That's really what it boils down to.

An extension will earn him more money and more guaranteed money.

So how can he be greedy by turning down more money and more guaranteed money?
Not everyone understands how it works.

Drew would get more money this year if he were to sign a extension. If Brees wants to continue playing for the Saints there is literally no downside for him signing a longer contract.

Nothing greedy at all
The deal was agreed a few years back and all camps were happy. Everyone knew it was back loaded. He is getting thevmoney agreed nothing more. He's not held out for more before the deal ends like Revis has before. No issue if he doesn't agree a extension,but if he doesn't ill only question his ambition for more rings

Foolish is what I think he would be. Does he want to play several more years? If so he needs an O-line to protect him. Before Drew retires Armstead will get a premium contract and the Saints have to pay Unger too.

No. its his business and his perrogative. We have no idea what he plans to do with life after football. He could be saving to invest in a later business venture. It is really none of our business and not our place to pass judgment on a man we do not know personally. I hate these stupid questions.

one of the idiots were on NFLN today saying that Brees and the Saints will get an extension done but there's no date set for completing it but it should happen before training camp and this clown also said that the Saints won't be big players in March, I don't believe him
