Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints approach two-minute warning in contract skirmish
Written by 

tom benson saintsThe clock is ticking for Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints as both and the fans are now approaching the two-minute warning.

The Saints must sign Drew Brees before July 16 at 4:00 E.T. 

Very few people expect Brees and the Saints to fall out of a contract this year.  Should that day past and no deal, the Saints could be without its face, voice and arm of the team should Brees opt out for the season.  Brees, in turn, if the seemingly impossible would occur, could lose millions in endorsements and the future opportunities to hit the national media circuits. 

Alternatively, the quarterback could accept the tag deal for a “paltry” $16.371 million and be disgruntled.  That type of attitude which could be overt or subliminal could carry over to the rest of the players who are trying to heal their bountygate wounds and face angry crowds outside of its home court being led with part-time coaches and general managers, in the first place.

If one trusts conventional wisdom, sometime before the drop-dead date and time, Brees will be happily sporting a Saints cap along with owner Tom Benson and both will be all smiles as if they were best of pals.  

Both Brees and Benson have said over the past months that a contract will be done.  

Let’s see if they are willing to put their money where their mouths are.

New Orleans Saints, Brees, Payton In Year of Divorces?

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
