Brees said in an interview with WWL radio that he’s growing increasingly frustrated with what he sees as the Saints* dragging their feet in getting a new agreement worked out.

“This is a big time for our team, especially when you look at what’s happened in this offseason, missing our head coach, Sean Payton,” Brees said. “There should be a sense of urgency and yet it seems like there’s not.”

In any deal it takes two sides to negotiate, and Brees says he feels like he and his agent are trying harder to get the deal completed than the Saints* are.

“We’ve reached out on a number of occasions and at times I’ve been frustrated by the lack of response,” Brees said.

From the Saints’ perspective, they know that they have him as their exclusive franchise player and therefore don’t have to worry about him signing with another team. The Saints* may figure that they can just hold the line and eventually Brees will give in and accept the one-year franchise tender, or accept a long-term deal worth less money than Brees thinks he deserves.

But Brees says that, contrary to the claims of Saints* owner Tom Benson about the sides being close, the Saints* haven’t offered him anything in the ballpark of the kind of contract he’d be willing to sign.

“Maybe not as close as people would be led to believe,” Brees said. “I would say that the numbers that have been thrown around by ESPN and some of these other places, at times, have been pretty heavily inflated.”

Brees says he has always done everything asked of him by the Saints*, and now it’s time for the Saints* to reward his loyalty with a “reasonable” and “appropriate” contract, which he says the Saints* so far haven’t offered him.

“It’s been extremely frustrating for me,” Brees said. “The negotiation shouldn’t have been this difficult.”


Great job, Saints*! :D

The one thing the Saints* can do right in 2012 is pay Brees. Which is why they havent.

They don't have the cap space they gave it all to Ben Grubbs and Curtis Lofton.

Why hasnt another team that could desperately use an elite QB just swooped in n offered a huge contract to Brees liking? If he played in another division or conference for that matter I might be able to like him a little bit just for the fact of leaving the Saints**
