The Saints and quarterback Drew Brees have until the start of the regular season to talk about an extension before Brees says he’ll put a stop to the conversations.
It looks like they will get the deal done.
PFT has learned, via a league source, that the two sides are close on an agreement that would keep Brees in New Orleans beyond the expiration of his contract at the end of the 2016 season.
PFT added there’s no word on the total figures or length of the deal, but it’s likely to be one that runs to a point when the next question for Brees will be whether he’s retiring or not. Brees is now surrounded by a young group of very talented WRs and he should continue to produce fantasy numbers as long as he stays healthy.
