New Orleans Saints Drew Brees won’t work on a new contract until the end of the season.
Well, that could turn out to be a problem.
Without a new contract, the Saints have expressed interest in applying the franchise tag to Brees for next season, expected to be in the $14-$16 million range. Brees wants no part of that.
If he doesn’t sign it, he won’t be under contract — and a free agent.
