How long will New Orleans Saints play Drew Brees contract game?

In 2011, the New Orleans Saints' linebackers were arguably the finest group on the defense. Jo-Lonn Dunbar stepped in for defensive Captain Jon Vilma, and the defense actually played better during this time. 

But Dunbar also showed an ability to step outside upon Vilma's return and play solidly on the edge. With that said, the Saints are in position to potentially add one of the finest players in the game in his prime. 

The player I am speaking of is of course Cleveland Browns middle linebackerD'Qwell Jackson. In the 2011 season, the six-year veteran recorded a career-high 158 tackles—a tally good equaling almost 10 tackles per game.”

In addition to that ridiculous number, Jackson also managed 3.5 sacks, ...

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
