WIST-AM New Orleans is reporting that Drew Brees is “livid” about being franchised tagged and will not sign his tender.
Drew Brees is “livid” about being franchise tagged and not receiving a long-term contract, according to WIST-AM in New Orleans. The radio station cites sources in the Brees camp that he will not sign the franchise tag deal. Brees and the Saints have until July 15 to hammer out a long-term deal. If a deal isn’t struck, Brees must sign the franchise tag deal or hold out.
Brees doesn’t seem like the type to be “livid” about anything, so there’s a chance that this report isn’t accurate. But if it is, how bad could things continue to get in New Orleans?
I don’t think there’s a chance in Hades that the Saints don’t figure out a way to lock up Brees long te
