New Orleans Saints offensive lineman Zach Strief referred to Drew Brees as a "quarterbacking robot" who deserves more than any other player to be taken care of financially, he said in a SiriusXM radio interview Sunday.

"Nobody deserves to be paid and to be compensated more than him," Strief said. "No one puts in more time. Nobody is more important to this team and this locker room. To us, as players, there's nobody that we feel is more important to take care of than that guy. Drew's contract will get done. Obviously with a guy that valuable, that contract takes time."



The Saints and Brees have held intermittent talks about extending a five-year, $100 million contract that will expire after the 2016 season.

Strief referred to Brees as a "quarterbacking robot" for the consistency in his weekly preparation. Strief said he could tell where Brees will be at any given moment during the week.

Yep. I'm all about it. We are going to be in great shape as far as the cap goes. Give him a front loaded contract now.

There are 9 QB's ahead of him in the NFL, but he will get paid, no doubt. He is going to end up with about 22-25m

No, not in relation to others at his position across the league. One can argue he is vastly underpaid. How soon we forget the old days. Buddy D and several hundred Saints fans wore paper bags on their heads in 1980-81 as a protest against management for refusing to spend competitive dollars on players. I personally would rather not return to those times and hope the team does right and pays Brees what he is worth.

Brees needs to get the contract done before the season starts. If he waits and regresses this year Condon will play hell getting a good deal and it won't be a pretty end.

I can't imagine him regressing at this point when he has been looking as good as ever and is reportedly in OTA's as perhaps the best conditioned player on the roster. One thing to remember, Condon is also Peyton Manning's agent and he twice had Manning play out his contract before signing a new one with the Colts. Besides, Condon and Loomis supposedly have a very good relationship and that matters a lot in these circumstances.
