I hope that means he is willing to accept a "team friendly" contract offer. He deserves to get paid, but we also need some pieces around him to be successful.

Just get Cousins. Brees will want more than Cousins and has no shelf life. I know that won't happen but it would be a smart move.

Ok, when the offer sheet arrives, sign it. End of story......don’t believe his agent will be so willing. If it’s still Condon, all bets are off.

I wish I could like that quote twice!

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 hope you are right RSII.....I want to think that as well, but something tells me that money will talk, especially as this will likely be his last NFL contract. I love the guy, but Drew is all about Drew.

I have pointed this out before, but Brees is at a point in his career where his "brand" is far more lucrative than his NFL paycheck. His brand is tied to New Orleans. He stands to lose far more than an extra five or six million a year by abandoning the Saints. Yes, you are correct, money does talk and that is exactly why he will never leave The Saints or New Orleans. Brees makes more from his endorsements, commercials and business ventures than he does playing football. That doesn't mean he won't be trying to get as much as he can, but it will only be with the Saints.

And I seriously doubt this will be Brees' last contract. I expect a series of essentially one year extensions for the remainder of his career.

I don't think he will take a 1 year deal and someone will offer a 3.
