If you put something in quotes that implies that the referenced person actually stated those words. What Brees was actually quoted as saying in that article was, "I don't know that it is something that will be done next week or before the end of the year or next year or when." Add to that the fact that according to the writer, Brees also said the talks were "amicable and ongoing" supports my supposition that both sides are in agreement and it is simply the timing that remains. The "when" of the deal will most likely be as soon as Loomis knows exactly what cap relief is needed in relation to further free agency and the draft. Nowhere in that article did Brees, or the writer, imply that there was any "if" involved. You added that detail yourself.

Now I know you're full of it. I added the actual article which you included when you quoted my statement. If you disagree with the article, take it up with the writer. But I stand behind what I posted. Loomis is dragging his feet.

Since you wish to insinuate that I'm making things up, here is the entire article copied and pasted for you to read.

Drew Brees said Monday that negotiations on a long-term contract extension with the New Orleans Saints are amicable and ongoing but added that he doesn't know when or if a deal will eventually be completed.

"I don't know that it is something that will be done next week or before the end of the year or next year or when," Brees said on the After Further Review Show with Matt Moscona on 104.5-FM in Baton Rouge.

Brees, who turned 37 last month, is entering the final year of a five-year, $100 million deal he signed in 2012.

"I want to be a Saint for the rest of my career," Brees said. "I think I've got a lot of good years left."

Saints general manager Mickey Loomis declined to comment on Brees' contract situation at the LSU Pro Day last week in Baton Rouge. Brees' agent Tom Condon said earlier this month that talks with the Saints had not begun.

"It's good, despite what might be portrayed as far as the business aspect of it," Brees said. "For all players and all teams, it's a negotiation. There's always back and forth. Obviously I've got a very strong relationship with the Saints."

Brees battled through a pair of injuries this season. A rotator cuff injury to his this throwing shoulder sidelined him for the Week 3 game in Carolina, the first game he's missed because of injury in his 10-year career with the Saints. He also suffered a partially turn plantar fascia in his foot in Week 15 but played with the injury and led the Saints to wins against Jacksonville and Atlanta.

Despite the injuries, Brees compiled one of his best seasons as a Saint. He completed 68.3 percent of his passes for an NFL-high 4,870 yards and 32 touchdowns. His 11 interceptions matched the 2009 season as the lowest of his Saints' tenure.

"I actually feel really good, better than I did last offseason," Brees said. "It's interesting, the older you get the more you feel like you have to stay on top of yourself physically, making sure you're doing everything you can to heal up and prepare yourself for the next season... There is nothing that I can't do now that I did 15 years ago (when entering the NFL as a rookie in 2001)."

The Saints' motivations to extend Brees' contact are twofold. First, it would lock up their star quarterback for what is likely the rest of his playing career. Second, it would allow them to expunge his league-high $30 salary cap figure from their books.

The Saints have the least salary cap room in the NFL, reportedly just $1.3 million below the $155.27 million salary cap on Monday. And that figure doesn't account for the contracts of recent free-agent signees James Laurinaitis and Jamarca Sanford.

I guess Jeff Duncan doesn't know what he's talking about either? Right?

I don't disagree with the article at all. It supports what I have been saying. You are the one that totally misrepresented the basis of the article in general and outright falsifying a Brees quote.

Right. Yet the article states word for word what I quoted. I see that arguing with you is like arguing with a brick wall. I'm so much smarter than this. I'll allow you to continue by yourself.

The article states "word for word" what you quoted? Here is what you quoted ...

Here is the latest on Drew's contract. Notice how the player is quoted as saying: "He doesn't know when or if a deal with eventually be completed." This is bad business on the part of Loomis. This needs to get done, but I'm sure you will attempt to downplay it again.

Where in that article does it state "word for word" what you posted? Where does the article even come somewhere close to what you posted? Hell, the word "if" doesn't even appear in the entire article in any context. You are so full of crap.

Oh, and a brick wall? Excellent analogy because my stance is completely solid while yours is as stable as diarrhea.
