The New Orleans's Saints Franchise Tagging of Drew Brees
Written by 

brees-familyThe contract talks between the New Orleans Saints and one of the most prolific passers in NFL history are coming down to the wire. 

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Brees and the New Orleans Saints are a ways apart and if the two sides cannot make significant progress, New Orleans will be forced to Franchise tag him. 

The problem with that scenario is the tag would result in a one-year contract with Brees again on the market next year and the Saints would lose their opportunity to Franchise Tag another player such as Marques Colston or Carl Nicks. 

However, if the Saints spend their bankroll on Brees, it will it make it difficult for New Orleans to keep the core of the team, players such as Robert Meachem who are now free agents. 

Some experts wonder how the Saints could possibly not pay Brees closer to what he wants since he is tagged symbolically with the Saints and with New Orleans's recovery.  He also just happens to posses some of the greatest passing numbers in NFL history including most yards passing in a season, a record he achieved in 2011, breaking that of former Miami Dolphins great, Dan Marino.
