QB Drew Brees and the Saints reach agreement on five-year deal worth $100 M, including $40 M in the first year and $60 M guaranteed in the first three years.
This is great news for Saints fans and Brees owners alike. We have had Brees ranked as our #3 QB, assuming that he'd eventually report to camp. But it's good that he'll be in camp for its entirety after missing offseason workouts. We are still a bit concerned about Sean Payton's suspension, but that's a minor issue relative to the contract situation. OC Pete Carmichael called the plays after Payton injured his knee and the Saints offense didn't miss a beat.
