Will New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees agree upon a cool $20.3M
Written by 

drew breesESPN's Chris Mortensen reported on NFL Live on Wednesday that unsigned franchise player Drew Brees is seeking $20.3 million annually in longterm contract talks with the Saints. Pro Football Talk reported on Tuesday that the Saints are offering upwards of $19 million annually.

Mortensen expects "some movement" in the 2-3 week period before training camp after the arbitrator rules on whether Brees' 2012 franchise tag is void.

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