New Orleans Saints: New contract in the works for Drew Brees

Saints quarterback Drew Brees agent Tom Condon is currently in talks with the Saints in hopes of securing a new lucrative long-term contract for the Pro Bowl signal caller.

Brees currently has one year left on the six year, 60 million dollar contract that he signed when joining the team prior to the start of the 2006 season.

A new contract has been looming  on the horizon for Brees for some time, but he has graciously allowed the Saints to put his deal on the back burner while they re-build the roster at other key positions.

A few days ago the Eagles re-signed quarterback Michael Vick to a six year 100 million dollar contract, of which he will receive a $7 million dollar signing bonus, a $3 million dollar roster bonus and a $10 million dollar salary in 2011 alone.

Indianapolis also reached a new deal with Peyton Manning for $90 million a few weeks back. That deal was one the Saints and Brees had been waiting for to “set” the market for what a top-tier quarterback should be paid.

Brees is certainly deserving of a whopper of a contract to remain with the Saints for many years to come. He too should see a deal in the $100 + million dollar range, and you can bet the Saints are more than happy to give it to him.

    Can you believe that the idiot Eagles will pay the dog killer more than Indy will pay player/coach Manning? Vick probably had to look at his driver license to sign his contract correctly!

    @Texas Joe Well to each their own and to Philadelphia Michael Vick is nearly priceless. Realistically though Vick will probaly see no more than $80 million of the deal, but Payton will likely see the full $90 million of his deal. Personally I think the Eagles should have let Vick play through most of this seasn before giving him a new deal. Can he mantain his potent play? Can he stay healthy as much as he likes to run the all?
