Acceptable: Drew Brees signs a contract during the season

While Brees has been pretty adamant about not discussing a new deal once the regular season starts because of the focus on the task at hand, does that mean he’ll completely dismiss it? It’s hard to say anything other than no, despite his desire to just focus on helping the New Orleans Saints get back to being a winning football club.

When asked on the overall process of things, Brees said, “Conversations happen in regards to the contract it’s between my agent Tom Condon and Mickey Loomis and, obviously, I am kept abreast as to the way those conversations are going. I think there’s a process to this and it isn’t an exact science and it isn’t an exact process. We’ll see how this shakes out over the next month and a half.”

The Saints front office may not seem to have the sense of urgency on the surface, but we honestly don’t know what goes on behind the closed doors at Airline Drive (The Greenbrier for now). If this truly does drag into the regular season, then look for the team’s Week 5 bye as a point where a deal could get done.
