Regardless of the amount of the guaranteed money in Drew Brees‘ five-year, $100 million contract, the Saints hope to pay out every last dollar — just like they did on his initial six-year, $60 million contract with the club.

Saints G.M. Mickey Loomis has issued a statement acknowledging that Brees deserves the very significant compensation he’ll be getting.

“What Drew has accomplished in his time with the Saints, he deserves to be the highest paid player in the league,” Loomis said.  “We are excited to have this deal done and behind us and look forward to the next five years with Drew as our quaterback.”

If Brees finishes the new deal, he will have spent 11 years with the team, earning $160 million.

Brees will meet with the media on July 24, when training camp opens in Metairie, Louisiana.

    Overpaid? Probably.
    Overrated? Only if you can remember — without the use of a search engine — who was the Saints’ QB before he got there.

    @onlysane1intheroom:

    You are clearly not a Saints fan. What Drew Brees has done for that franchise is incredible.

    Underrated and paid what he’s earned.

    Mickey Loomis is the man who figured out it would be smart to hire Sean Payton and Drew Brees. Any team would hire him in a second to be their GM if he were available. He has been talked about as being a prime candidate to be the next NFL commissioner. Hmmm, could that be why Goodell… naw, probably not.

    I told you people’s once a Saints always a Saints if you want to be it all about business. Behind a 160 million I will take my time to it not about overrated nor overpaid its about WHODAT’S and Drew Brees and family is a WHODAT’S. Thanks to GM Mickey Loomis and owner Tom Benson for a job well done so let’s play ball GO SAINTS GO.

    He is only overpaid in the context that all athletes are overpaid.
