What about Grayson though?
The Saints are simply hoping he can be a backup some day. If they were confident that he could they most likely wouldn't have given McCown his deal (2 year/$3 million).

I am a big Drew fan but I was a Saints fan first. Do whats best for the team. If what was said is true it means the Brees talks were stalled. If so, I beleive he was mentioned in the trade. No reason to keep someone for 1 year when you can get a ton of picks for him. Now, if Drew is not going to be a Saint next year I would trade back in rd 1 and take Connor Cook.

What do you mean, "If what was said is true it means the Brees talks were stalled"? If you are talking about the Rapaport crap then ChrisXVI has already shown that there is nothing to it ... which, by the way, is exactly what I said earlier. And once again, I feel pretty confident that not only has the Brees talks not stalled, but that the deal has already been made except for cap hit details which nobody knows until after the draft.

Just like a restaurant. We see the food when it comes out but while it is being made who really knows what's happening behind the doors.

Re: Saints held talks for Number 1 Pick

Don't forget that every NFL franchise has at least three QB's on the roster and practice squad. Not picking up a QB through either the draft or through undrafted free agency every off-season is not doing your due diligence. It does not in any way mean they are "actively" searching for the next starter. You want the two, or more, non-starting QB's to be a balance of talent and value. That means you are constantly looking to upgrade.

Re: Saints held talks for Number 1 Pick

Its to our advantage to make all 31 teams think we may go QB in this years draft.

True or not, signing Brees before the draft convinces all 31 teams we likely are not going QB.
