Cap hell incoming in 3. . .2. . .1.


What do you mean? Brees is asking for at least 5 million a year more than he will make next year with the franchise tag.

Brees is the best thing ever to happen for the Saints. Why not just pay him rather than pay him a little less and piss him off?


Because he now wants out and that is the only way they could keep him.

This is actually bad news for the rest of the NFC south and brilliant by the Saints. They can now take a lower cap hit with Brees and have $$ to sign Colston and Nicks. I wouldn't be surprised if this was the plan all along. After signing the other two and with the Cap potentially increasing they can then sign Brees to long term deal. Loomis again showing why he is best GM in the league.


It was their plan to get into a contract war with their best player in franchise history and frustrate him, then making them use the tag on brees letting nicks walk away clean? Solid plan

Brees can choose not to sign the franchise tender.

Have you heard one negative thing come out of Brees mouth? Some contract war. He is doing what is best for the team which is pretty amazing considering what most players would do. He just wants another ring and this move is a big step in getting that.

Nicks will still make more on the open market. Same with Colston.

The Saints have already lost Nicks, he was never offered a contract and will be offered more then the Saints can afford to pay him. The Saint's have to sign Bree's long term and that's what this Tag is for. Plus the Cap doesn't go up till 2014 and Bree's won't put up with being tagged more then once. I won't be surprised to see Colston walk either since he's probably hasn't been offered a deal either. So Bree's still crippled the Saint's by wanting 23 million a season.



This is just Loomis and the Saint's showing just how much Bree's has them by the balls, nothing more.

Here is the irony--Brees is a short QB who needs that all-pro offensive line--especially the guards keeping people out of his face--they know that he needs to see the field and Guards keep his vision clear. The fact that they have to lose the best G in the NFL and Brees' top WR to sign him means that they will pay him top dollar and probably get a drop off in production. Throw in the fact that they will lose the draft picks....

So now it's "brilliant" for the Saints to piss off the best player they ever had, waste the Franchise tag on a player they should have already locked down and now have to outbid every other interested team in order to re-sign two of their best players?

You are an imbecile.

Him and his agent wanting 23 million wasn't in the best interest of the Saint's, it costed them Nicks and Colston most likely. This isn't about the Saint's it's about Bree's becoming the highest paid NFL player ever....If you can't see that, your blinded by your homerism of Bree's and the Saints.

Besides being unhappy that they won't pay him what him wants.

What most players would do? Every single player on the Panthers are willing to restructure their contracts and take very little to better the team. We don't allow drama queen divas on our team.

Aw it's like he doesn't even know. Well I won't ruin his youthful innocence.
