Covington lawyer Antonio "Tony" Le Mon has opened a trust fund he hopes will help keep quarterback Drew Brees a New Orleans Saints** player. The "Drew Brees Fans Step Up Trust Account," is an irrevocable trust to which Le Mon has already contributed $500.
Brees can do whatever he wants with the money, according to Le Mon. If the star player does not accept it, the total amount will be donated to the Brees Dream Foundation charity.
While Le Mon acknowledges his plan has its gimmicky elements, he feels Saints** fans need to tap whatever resources they can to either jumpstart stalled negotiations between Brees and the club, or at least seek a remedy for a situation in which Le Mon believes the fans' voice has gone unheard.
Besides, he argued, Brees deserves it.
"It's to thank him for being a great ambassador to the city," Le Mon said. "And to try and convince him to stay. We have been disempowered. We have to think outside the box on this. We do have power as a group."
He described the Trust as, "sort of like a tip, or a gratuity on a job well done," and because the proceeds will go to charity if the quarterback declines them, "it's a win-win."
