Drew is going to set records that will be almost impossible to beat. He won't leave New Orleans for money. Right now he is focused on chasing titles and getting another Lombardi.
I believe that too. He has earned somewhere between $150-200M during his career in just salaries. Then add endorsements and commercials and such and thats probably another $50M. He seems to be managing his finances in a smart way so he has no need to ever worry about money for his or his children or great great great grandchildren ever again.

And sure i think we should pay him a decent salary but I don't think being the highest paid whatever is his main focus right now.

He took essentially a one year deal last time and it doesn't matter if someone else offers an eight year deal. There is no logical reason for him to leave and EVERY reason for him to stay. This isn't Joe Blow, journeyman backup. He is totally invested far deeper than an NFL contract into New Orleans and Louisiana.

I'll guarantee you he is making more outside of football than in annually. He is involved in numerous successful business ventures on top of everything else.

There is no way he will make more than cousins next year. There is going to be a bidding war for cousins and the browns have 130 million dollars. Cousins will make 30 next year and Brees will be closer to 18-22

There could be a bidding war for Brees. Both he and Cousins are saying it's not about the money. I guess we are going to find out.

No bidding war for Brees. He will be a saint for life. They will pay him and he will accept. He has a good team around him which is ontly missing a player or two. Bree痴 has signed 3 total contracts with the saints and there has never been other teams in the mix. Drew is not nick Satan. When he says he is staying he means it.

Drew has a team now that showed this year can make a serious run, he signs a 2 year deal, no drama.

What business ventures? Jimmy Johns?
Restaurants are horrible investment businesses. If you own a couple of them you may be able to make a nice living at about 200k a year but that痴 only if you are very hands on. It痴 not a type of business where you can just have someone else handle and make any money. He has those because he likes the food and wanted to bring it to New Orleans. It痴 just fun for him. Probably doesn稚 generate any real revenue. Not anything meaningful to him anyway.
I didn稚 know we were privy to any other investments he may have.
I always hear about him and politics. He痴 stated interest in it but hasn稚 said anything about it being on a local level.

Anything Drew does outside football (generally speaking) is probably for tax reasons.
