It is believed that the June 1 offer would pay Brees more than $19.2 million per year, making him the highest paid player in NFL history.
Mike Triplett of The Times-Picayune joined PFT Liveon Tuesday to talk about the Brees situation. These new developments could diminish the optimism that a long-term deal would will get done before Monday at 3 p.m.
Triplett wrote today that "it would be a "stunning upset" if a a deal was not done by Monday at 4 pm EST, the franchise tender deadline.
Triplett might not be the only one stunned as Saints fans have suffered more turnovers than the black and gold would normally suffer during the Era of the Aint's.
Saints tackle Zach Strief said Brees is like the engine in a car. How far can you go without an engine?
