Impact of Manning-Broncos Deal On Drew Brees And New Orleans Saints?
Written by 

peyton-manningOne down and one big one to go.
The same agent who negotiated a sweet deal for Peyton Manning now turns his sights to help Drew Brees maneuver around the current mess on the New Orleans Saints free-agency field.
Tom Condon has helped Manning, a New Orleans-product to a deal reportedly that averages $18.5 million per season but with an injury waiver.

Drew Brees and the Saints are reportedly five million dollars apart.
Regardless of Brees, it is difficult to believe that Manning is getting that type of money considering his brittle neck that kept him from playing last year.
So, how does the Manning deal square with the one that Drew Brees might win from the Saints?
Here are some opinions from around the nation:
“If the reports are accurate, that means the Saints have offered Brees less money than Manning even though Brees is younger, healthier and more prolific. After all, he's coming off a season in which he set the NFL record for passing yards in a season and led the Saints to a franchise-tying-best record of 13-3. No quarterback in the NFL has passed for more yards or touchdowns than Brees during the past six seasons.”…Jeff Duncan, Times Picayune

If Manning gets a deal worth $90 million over 5 years, than it's conceivable to think Condon will look for a similar deal for Drew Brees. Manning will get close to $20 million dollars a year with possibly $30 million guaranteed. Brees is two years younger and is healthier, so you would have to think the Saints will be pressed for more guaranteed money. Nonetheless it's a good starting point for Condon and Brees to call on the Saints once the deal with Manning is finalized in Denver. Condon's job is simply to get as much in return value for his client as possible. The players rarely get involved with the finite details and dollar amounts in contracts. I think within a week of Manning working out his deal with the Broncos, you could see a similar deal with Brees and the Saints….Kristan Garic, WWL radio

What's Brees worth given Manning deal? Tom Condon represents both Manning & Brees. Reported $90 mil/5 yr Saints offer is a little light now.

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.
