Over the past few months there have been reports that New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has been looking for a new deal that will pay him over $21 million per year.
According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, Brees has never demanded $21 million. There have even been some people who’ve stated that he’s been looking for up to $23 million per season.
It wouldn’t be a surprised at all if the reports that have thrown around have been inflating a result of inflation. Brees did say last month that this could a possibility.
“I would say that the numbers that have been thrown around by ESPN and some of these other places, at times, have been pretty heavily inflated,”
Right now there’s some belief that the Saints have been offering Brees between $18 and $19 million per season. It’s really confusing as to why a deal hasn’t gotten done. Maybe Saints general manager Mickey Loomis is too busy scouting NBA prospects.

Over the next few days, the New Orleans Saints will conduct their June mandatory minicamp and of course franchise quarterback Drew Brees won’t be in attendance as he continues to wait for the Saints to get their act together and pay him.
Until Brees gets the offer he’s looking for from the Saints, I wouldn’t even expect him to show up for training camp.

As the offseason and your quest to improve your roster continues, you don’t need me to tell you it’s going to be very hard to make any real improvements to your roster without a few trades. I get asked many times on Twitter if I like a certain trade. I always let folks know there are two ways to grade these trades. One, you can grade it player vs. player in a vacuum...
