The first question on all Saints fans’ minds when they heard that the G.O.A.T. was returning for his 20th season was, what kind of contract will he be looking for? Two years ago, Drew signed a two year, $50 million contract. Many expected Drew to be looking for a similar figure this time around. However, earlier today the news broke that Drew Brees was not going to push for a top dollar contract.
One Goal in Mind
This reiterates the point that Drew has one goal in mind. He is ready to bring the Lombardi back to New Orleans, no matter what it takes. This is a classy move from a classy guy, who knows the talent surrounding him is too good to let go. The money that could have been paid to Drew will now be spent trying to retain some of our biggest free agents such as: Vonn Bell, David Onyemata, Taysom Hill and others. As well as trying to reload this roster, to quote Drew Brees, “Make another run at it!” Whodat!
