Five years, $100 million, $60 million over the first three years. Drew Brees is certainly deserving of this payday.
Now it's on to training camp, and positive news for a football team, organization, and fan base that has been seemingly pelted with negative news after negative news for months.
For Mickey Loomis, this was the most important contract he's ever negotiated, so no surprises that it took a while. Months ago, you heard Mickey say that back at the Senior Bowl, and that they understood what Drew means to the Saints, and vice-versa.
It's very good to see it all meld together with time to spare before the Monday deadline.
Was so glad to see the message that the deal was done. Now it's time to get ourselves settled and be prepared to get heckled over bounty gate. I never stopped being a Saints Fan, and will dance right through this one too.
