The league’s most prominent contract negotiations right now are between Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. Brees saved the Saints franchise from mediocrity and a possible move from New Orleans, yet the organization is still playing hardball with the single season passing yards record holder. Yesterday, Brees spoke out and called the negotiations, as you could expect, “extremely frustrating.”
Today Saints GM Mickey Loomis spoke out and promised a deal would get done. The Saints would be wise to get a deal done sooner rather than later. Having your quarterback miss any practice is never a good thing and these drawn out negotiations do not paint the front office in a positive light to the rest of the players on the team. The Saints also could really use some good press and karma finally, after an offseason filled with BountyGate news.
