Click bait. Brees will simply do another contract just like this one at a higher annual salary.

With the cap currently at $167 million this year and likely to be $175 million or more come next year, a cap hit north of $20 million really isn't that big a deal.

For some reason none of the national media wants to believe that Brees wants to retire a Saint. He's had the opportunity to go for the gold. Instead he worked out a fair deal that got him paid and still left the team enough flexibility to build what's looking like a winning roster around him.

Next time up isn't the first, second, or even third rodeo for Brees.

So like I said... Click bait.

Only Atlanta choked in an unchokable situation... Life is definitely good.

So hard to get a QB these days. Either way, we have been very fortunate. Enjoy the rest of the ride folks.

Well we have a young nucleus who haven't been paid yet, so it won't be an issue until then. I don't see Drew going anywhere, regardless.

It would help if Terron Armstead could ever get, and stay, healthy considering he HAS been paid, so that we don't have to go tackle shopping. People say we have Ramczyk, but he's still unproven and would leave a hole a right tackle for the future if he has to play left.

The comments on that article are sickening. Drew is the heart and soul of this team. Anything less is absolute BS.

It'll be funny when he retires and we're back to a mediocre QB. The same people will complain about how terrible he is. Spoiled fans. Of course we get an Aaron Rodgers waiting in the wings. I wouldn't sleep on that.

Another losing season and he's gone. I'd put money on it.

The next 1 to 2 year contract Brees signs will probably be in the neighborhood of 28-30 mil per year, with all of it guaranteed.

Usually when a player gets this kind of money, I roll my eyes. But Stafford has carried the Lions on his back for a few years now, he's been impressive.

I really don't expect another losing season, but if it does happen he's only gone if he retires and I don't see that happening because he wants all of the passing records. I'll take your money ($50?) and say that he doesn't go to another team. As easy as that money would be, I hope we do not get a chance to see for several more years to come.
