Drew Brees Turned Down This Lofty Deal To Return To Saints

Would Cowboys sack Dak Prescott if Drew Brees hit the open market

Would Cowboys sack Dak Prescott if Drew Brees hit the open market

The 11-time Pro Bowler led the Saints to victory in Super Bowl XLIV, a championship loaded with symbolism as New Orleans recovered from the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina five years earlier.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news but Cousins's agent said the deal was not yet done - free agency does not open until Wednesday in any case.

It is expected that Brees, 39, will reach a deal to return to the Saints, but the Vikings figure it can't hurt to inquire. That deal more or less drops Denver out of the race of Kirk Cousins, who remains the Jets' top free agent target.

"It was just a matter of coming together and making sure we got the right deal done", he said. However, he's spent the past 12 seasons in New Orleans and won a Super Bowl there, so it's not surprising that he ultimately preferred to stay rather than uproot to another city.

The team on Tuesday struck a two-year deal with their star quarterback worth $50 million - including $27 million in guarantees - sources told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Jane Slater.

With the league's legal tampering window opening Monday at 11 a.m., Condon had almost 24 hours to negotiate with other teams before Brees signed his contract with the Saints.

However, the emotion doesn't entirely register, despite presenting a story about a daughter desperately trying to find her father. Maybe that's one of the oddities that are just hard to pin down about this film. "But you have to write the sonnet yourself".


"All I'll say is I would love nothing more than to have Jimmy back", Brees said.

The Saints also weren't allowed to use the franchise tag on Brees because of a clause in his most recent contract.

The Saints are pushing their chips to the center with Brees and Payton once again in 2018.

A reunion with Graham seems like a very realistic possibility, with several reports surfacing over the past week that New Orleans is a serious contender for him now that his contract has expired with the Seattle Seahawks.

In his career, Brees has thrown for more than 70,000 yards and almost 500 touchdowns.
