I find it rather interesting that we haven’t heard a single thing about Drew Brees and New Orleans so far this offseason. Brees is set to become a free agent later this offseason.
Everyone you talk to will tell you that he is re-signing with New Orleans. Something seems off, he hasn’t signed yet and there has been no news about him signing.
The two sides met on Thursday at the combine to start working out a deal. Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis stated that “he is going to be a Saint”. When the G.M. is that confident in something, it’s usually going to get done.
Drew Brees is the number two free agent going into this offseason behind Kirk Cousins. Brees just turned 39 in January, so expect him to sign a Tom Brady-like deal that will keep him with the Saints until the end of his career.
