New Orleans and All-Pro Quarterback Drew Brees are closer to agreeing to a new contract extension than previously expected. The Saints are offering close to 19 million dollars according to NBC Sports. While ESPN reported Brees wanted over 21 million or even 23 million dollars, the quarterback has since denied those claims. Fans are now left to wonder, why hasn’t this deal been completed then?
Brees should be a top rated QB again this season, but owners should wait a little longer to see how the Saints and this contract dispute shapes up, just in case there is a long-term holdout.
