Sean Payton half-joked on PFT Live Tuesday that he’d be in New Orleans as long as Drew Brees stayed there.
The Saints are working to make sure Brees is there a very long time.
Brees confirmed to the New Orleans Times-Picayune that his agent and the Saints are in “ongoing” discussions about a new deal. Brees couldn’t help but notice Michael Vick’s contract.
“I did see it,” Brees said. “It looks like a nice contract. Obviously I don’t know any of the details other than the six years and $100 million.”
If Brees kept up on his PFT reading, he would know it’s not really a $100 million deal. We’d guess that Brees will get a contract somewhere above Vick’s contract, but below Peyton Manning’s recent deal.
