I certainly don’t intend or mean to take away anything Brees has done or will do for the Saints and the city of New Orleans. But you have to be truthful when looking at his situation.
Brees is looking at what’s best for the future of his family. It may pain “Brees” fans to hear this but if it came down to a choice between the Saints and what’s best for his family, Britney and the Boys will win hands down.
Let’s not also overlook the fact that Brees stated he would work his contract to help the team maintain the core players needed to be a contender. Anybody seen Carl Nicks? Oh yeah, he’s in Tampa Bay. Yet some “fans” wanted to label him as being greedy. Interesting.
WIST 690 AM The Sports Hangover’s Larry Holder also broke the story that Brees had actually been offered a contract this past season that would have made him the highest paid player in the NFL. Yet, he didn’t sign it.
The question becomes really if there is really a lack of communication or is Condon asking a price too out of the ballpark for Brees right now. That’s what Loomis has to determine.
