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.

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
