2 first round picks, geesh! I like Drew, that will be awful tempting. I just don't see how they can afford making a offer to Drew without killing our cap. Drew say he have a lot more years in him but I see at the most 2yrs. 40 is the big number that concern me

2 first round picks for a hall of fame QB still playing at that level..no thanks
the cowboys received first and scond rounders for 3 years for Herschel, that might be worth considering, but anything else...not in a million years.

God when he is gone some are finally going to realize what we have

If Brees cap figure sits anywhere between $20-25ml its not killing the cap

Whats killed the cap of late has been Byrd,Spiller,Galette, Hawthorne,Bunkley and Lofton deals

You are falling into the trap of comparing today to the past. The average QB from as recently as ten years ago was in far worse physical shape than the players at the same position today. Brees has been at the cutting edge of this trend. Today Brees at 37 is in better physical condition than the vast majority of players at thirty ten years ago. At 40 he will still mostly likely be better fit than players ten years younger ten years earlier.

Brees has repeatedly said he plans to still be playing at a high level well into his forties, and there is nothing that he has said or done that would make me not believe in that prediction.

A very fair point. Training methods and nutrition has improved so much the last 10-20 years.

So true, 60 today is yesterday's forty. QB isn't RB and they're more protected...barring some kind of back injury or him starting to take too many hits I would agree with you

Man... there sure are a lot of pansy looking dudes analyzing football. This guy suggesting the broncos make a deal with THE SAINTS for Drew is an idiot. Drew ain't going anywhere.
