Soon to be free agent Drew Brees says that he will be “beyond stunned” if the New Orleans Saints don’t bring him back on a contract extension.
Speaking to the Associated Press, Brees echoed what head coach Sean Payton has maintained all along; the Saints want Brees back.
So why do we think that this is anything but a sure thing.
If the two sides can’t work out a deal, look for the Saints to use the franchise tag to keep Brees. That will probably not make Brees happy.
What also probably won’t make Brees happy is that Guard Carl Nicks and receivers Marques Colston and Robert Meachem are also free agents and the Saints will need to divide up their money among all four.
