True or not, signing Brees before the draft convinces all 31 teams we likely are not going QB.
That is true, as well. There are a number of reasons NOT to finalize an extension with Brees until after the draft and not a single good reason TO finalize anything immediately. And the mental well-being of a few fans is definitely not a good reason.

Lynch won't make it to 12 with the Rams taking Goff, The Eagles taking Wentz and Lynch going to any number of teams; Chargers, Cowboys, Jags, 49ers, Browns and Giants (Sorry Eli).

Re: Saints held talks for Number 1 Pick

I guess they didn't have talks about trading up, nevermind!


NFL | Report: Saints did not discuss No. 1 pick - Rotoworld.com


ESPN's Mike Triplett reports the Saints did not discuss trading for the No. 1 overall pick.

This refutes a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who said the Saints were interested in trading up to acquire a quarterback. Triplett denies the Saints were ever involved in trade talks for No. 1, but he does agree the Saints are interested in adding a quarterback, perhaps in the middle rounds. Entering the final year of his deal, Drew Brees said extension talks

I say pick up Manziel on the really, really, cheap lock him into an incentive laden contract for 5 years and let Drew teach him. Would be worth a shot for cheap but also we should get another QB for Drew to mentor just in case.

Jamarcus would probably be as much a headache for much less money....

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.
I mean that if they were looking to trade for the #1 pick they would be looking to draft a QB. If Drew is days away from signing an extention there would be no reason to trade up. Why would you trade up to have a QB sit for 3-5 years?

Re: Saints held talks for Number 1 Pick

I guess we have to have something to talk about between now and the draft, but it really doesn't matter to me what was, or was not, discussed. Nothing came of it, either way. There are some things that I'll try to read between the lines on, but when it comes to talk of potential draft picks or draft trades, I don't even blink anymore, until something actually happens.

This is the season of hot air. For more reasons than the weather.

Re: Saints held talks for Number 1 Pick

Made me think about Lawrence Phillips, shame. Man what could have been. That kid was a stud, flat out stud. If his head was half screwed on right or he could have realized that he needed help he could have been one of the best

Hope Johnny boy gets himself some help before it is too late
