Drew Brees almost certainly won't have a contract extension in place when the New Orleans Saints begin training camp on Thursday at The Greenbrier.

"We haven't made any progress," general manager Mickey Loomis said Wednesday evening when asked for an update on contract negotiations with the franchise quarterback.

Brees, who's entering the final year of his contract, told ESPN last week that he'd like to have a new deal in place by the start of the regular season, and when asked about that deadline Loomis said, "That's fine."

Both Loomis and Payton said they don't expect the lack of an extension to be a distraction for the 37-year-old quarterback during training camp.
