Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints Contract Negotiations
Every fan of the New Orleans Saints is anxious for the team to finally reach a long-term deal with quarterback Drew Brees–who was hit with the franchise tag during the offseason. Considering everything the quarterback has done for the organization over the last couple of years, it would seem wise for them to give Brees the type of money he wants–so what’s taking so long?
For starters, one of the main reasons why this deal is taking so long is because of other offseason distractions–with the main one being the organization dealing with all of the allegations surrounding the bounty hunting scandal. With all of this going on, it’s difficult for the team to organize 100 percent of their time sitting down with Brees and discussing a new deal–so it’s taking a little longer than expected.
Either way, it should only be a little bit longer before the two sides at least agree on something considering the deadline for a deal is July 16. Brees made it clear this week that he would never sit out part of the season to holdout for money–so a deal is likely to happen over the next couple of weeks.
