Drew Brees contract: What could it look like?
02/28/2020 10:42am

What might a contract for Saints quarterback Drew Brees look like USA TODAY Sports February 28, 2020 Kristian Garic functione,tift.ymvoid 0t.ymvar me.createElementscriptm.typetext/javascript,m.async0,m.src//static.yieldmo.com/ym.m5.js,e.getElementsByTagNamehead0e.getElementsByTagNamebody0.appendChildmelse t.ym instanceof Stringvoid 0t.ym.chkPlst.ym.chkPlsdocument,windowDrew Brees says hes coming back, so what would a contract for the future Hall of Fame quarterback look likeThe Who Dat Nation exhaled afterQB Drew Brees announced on social media that he will return for another run at it this NFL season. Now that his intention has been made, Brees and the Saints have to negotiate a contract to make it truly official. What might that contract look likeIn all likelihood, the deal is going to be a 1 or 2 year deal that averages 25 million per year. That is well below market value for an elite franchise quarterback regardless of age. Coach Sean Payton is leaving the negotiations up to Drew and General Manager Mickey Loomis. I would say this to both Drew and Mickey, here we arehowever many years. And every time that subject comes upthey always seem to get it done in an efficient matter. I dont think that will be any different this time around, explained the Saints head coach.Drew Brees is represented by Tom Condon of CA California Arts sports. However, given the uniqueness of this deal, Brees might decide to be his own representative and negotiate a team friendly deal. The goal would be to give the Saints more space to retain critical potential free agents and also target some unrestricted free agents the Saints might want to add.As Drew Brees said during the NFL Pro Bowl, Its not a matter of if the contract gets done, just a matter of when. Brees has also made it known that he has no desire to play for any other team. In other words, he wont test free agency, and leverage another team against the Saints.

There might be 10 people as talented as you if you want to get into TV. And then probably two or three if you want to play quarterback, Payton said.Payton said he expects Brees and the Saints to come to an agreement on a contract in an efficient manner.

Then theres the mental aspect -- is he willing to put in the grind that goes with an NFL season He answered that question. But theres also the money aspect of the game -- his contract is up, so how much will he be paidWell thats gonna be the big questions mark, said WWL NFL analyst Mike Detillier. I think the low part will be 25 million, the high point will be 30 million.Any chance Brees will offer the Saints a hometown discount Detillier says for all that Brees brings to the team, its a value even at tens of millions of dollars.When you look at how quarterbacks are getting paid today, even if you settle at 27 or 28 million dollars, that is a discount, he said.But, Detillier said, its likely that theres already some groundwork laid by Brees agent and the team.Both sides have probably had a preliminary talk about what it would cost.
