To be continued.
I expect that Brees wants to play 1) as long as he enjoys the whole process, 2) as long as Brady is playing to keep ahead of him in important career records, and 3) as long as he feels the team is capable of winning it all.

That all may mean more than two more years. In fact, I would be shocked if he doesn't play at least three more.

Re: Drew Brees restructures contract with Saints

Good move. Free up as much coin as possible and go on a savvy shopper FA spree if we are rolling with Brees one more time. The draft is not an option. Let's go buy the SB and get this over with.

Re: Drew Brees restructures contract with Saints

Brees is doing like Manning did with his final contract restructuring in Denver, which paved the way to give them more money to get a few more pieces for their final run in 2015.

He wants another ring so badly, this had to be done.

He should be going for his 3rd, but I digress...

Re: Drew Brees restructures contract with Saints

We're damn lucky to have Drew! I hope he retires years from now and owns all the records with little possibility of them being broken. I anticipate that Drew will play at least as long as Brady does. Brady is older but Drew has a surgically repaired throwing shoulder and he still has zip to his ball and his placement is still laser accurate. He's too stubborn to quit just yet.

Ya gotta admit, this is one hell of a good corner to be in.
You make a simple, strong case, but...

I'd rather the team be built to win each year like the Patriots or some of the other annual contenders than put all our eggs in one basket for one season...

And let's be honest, it was more than a horrible non-call, it was a badly called game by Payton that killed it...

Your right. The freak play against Vikes I can live with because we did that to ourselves. Last year is a different story it was taken from us. F it. Run it back with most of the core intact.

I get what your sayin but I see it a little different.

I don't think Payton/Loomis get enough credit for the way they've transformed this team. After the 3rd consecutive 7-9 season I had my doubts but now, I'm about as confident in this front office as I could be. (Even after the stupid *** Easton contract)

For a decade the Saints were a high octane passing team and they had a lot of success. But with Drew's impending retirement, they've changed this team into a hard nosed running team with a stout defense. Whomever the next QB is going to be, they've set them up the best way they can.

For years our rival's fans have been drooling at the thought of the years of rebuilding the Saints will have to do when Brees retires but I think they've already done it, or at least a long ways toward it.

That's just how I see it anyways.

Re: Drew Brees restructures contract with Saints

Yeah, I agree we are lucky to have Brees....

Could be worse. We could have that big baby in Green Bay who demanded to be the highest paid player in history; completely crippling his team's potential to put playmakers around him cause he's getting most of the money on their cap. (Not to mention, also got his coach fired this past year).

I know people used to call Brees greedy over his deal in 2012, but that is a long time ago at this point.
