brees-panthersDrew Brees usually is the center of attention.  He is synonymous with the New Orleans Saints during the season.    Now, the future of the New Orleans Saints and some of its star players are focused upon what he and the management might do.

If the Saints have to put the franchise tag on Brees, it has been reported that guard Carl Nicks likely will depart along with wide receiver Marques Colston, cornerback Tracy Porter and wide receiver Robert Meachem--sort of a new spinoff called  "Gone with the Brees".  Without doubt, the fate of the New Orleans Saints lies with the man who has taken them to the NFL land of milk and honey.
