Several media outlets are reporting that the Saints have presented a new contract offer to quarterback Drew Brees. Well, that's welcome news, but it's similar to what I've been reporting all day, and earlier this morning.
The Saints have extended Drew Brees a new contract offer, and it's undetermined or unknown right now if that will sway Drew Brees into agreeing to terms on that long-term contract offer. Right now, we're kind of in a holding pattern.
In other words, now the Brees camp is considering the latest offer from the Saints. They were previously at a $2 million dollar impasse, and I reported earlier that they were closer than that, and they've narrowed that margin down quite a bit. It's another sign that things are moving in a positive direction.
