There’s been a lot of talk about the Saints and quarterback Drew Brees coming to terms on an extension this offseason that would both keep him in New Orleans and lower his $30 million cap hit for the 2016 season.

Brees said late last month that he’s confident a deal will get done, but also said that he’s comfortable playing out the final year of his deal in the event it doesn’t happen. During an appearance on The Rich Eisen Show Wednesday, Brees’ agent Tom Condon said his impression is that the Saints feel the same way about letting things ride.

“At one point, New Orleans wanted to talk about a cap re-do, and Drew was more than happy to do that,” Condon said, via the New Orleans Advocate. “There were some intervening situations that occurred, so they didn’t need the cap room, and they seem to be satisfied with carrying that number right now.”

I'm fine with him playing his contract out if we don't need the room. Our cap number is going to be beautiful next year. We'll be like Jacksonville in free agency.

I'd rather Drew not hit free agency whilst he's still playing at an elite level.

If we don't extend him then I have no idea what we should do. Do we give a 38 year old Brees a 4 year/$88 million deal with $60 mil guaranteed or do we move on?

Its typical posturing. I feel a deal will get done.

Please don't believe anything Tom Condon says. He's a liar.

This should be a win/win. I have no clue why they have not worked something out. The Saints get a top QB and will have the cap room to pay him top money. Drew gets to finish his career with a team where he should break all records. I could understand the hold up before the draft but not now.

In a heart beat. Front load the contract where he makes 60 of the 80 million in the first 2 years. Should be easy seeing our cap room will be 50+ million next year.

Re: Tom Condon: Saints seem satisfied with Drew Brees’ cap number

Not only am I tied of hearing about the "Drew Brees" greedy controversy, I'm also tired of our team being cap strapped for the past 5 seasons, going into our 6th. So I hope it gets resolved one way or another so we can get on with our fan-base lives.

I'm all for not kicking a lot of money on future cap years.
