Saints | Drew Brees remains focused

Mon, 30 May 2016 13:34:42 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has remained focus this offseason despite a potential future contract extension. Brees is able to keep his focus with whatever situation he is in, according to head coach Sean Payton. As was reported earlier, Brees and his representatives will not negotiate a contract during the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: Extension or no extension, Brees is still one of the most reliable real-life and fantasy quarterbacks, as he has been for several years now. He's in mid-QB1 territory for fantasy drafts this offseason.

Saints | Drew Brees won't negotiate in season

Thu, 26 May 2016 09:28:46 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees, who said he hasn't had contract extension talks in two months, will not negotiate a new contract during the 2016 season. He doesn't plan to miss any offseason activities, whether a deal gets done or not.

Fantasy Tip: Brees' numbers have declined since his ridiculous 2011 season when he threw for 5,476 yards and 46 touchdowns. He hasn't exactly fallen off a cliff, either, despite his roster becoming somewhat questionable the last couple of years. Brees is 37, but he's still one of the first signal callers you're going to target after the first three studs are gone. That will be even more evident if Tom Brady's suspension holds.

Saints | Drew Brees will report for workouts

Mon, 23 May 2016 17:07:43 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he will be on the field for organized team activities Tuesday, May 24, even though the two sides have not be able to reach an agreement on a contract extension.

Fantasy Tip: Brees has thrown at least 30 touchdowns in each of his last eight seasons and at least 4,000 yards in each of his last 10 seasons. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues even though he is 37 years old.

Saints | Drew Brees not close to the end

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 06:59:12 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees didn't put much stock into the reports the team was looking to trade up to land the No. 1 pick earlier this offseason and said he doesn't plan to retire any time soon.

"It wouldn't be the first time that I've been on a team where they took a quarterback in the first round to come take my position and I would take the exact same approach now that I did then, which is, it's my team, it's my job," Brees said. "I don't think there's any use in talking about it because I doubt it would happen. And if it did, I trust our organization. I trust Mickey (Loomis) and Sean (Payton). If there's somebody there that you feel like is going to be the future of our organization for years to come, then take him, but I don't plan on giving up my job anytime soon."

Fantasy Tip: Brees would usurp Tom Brady in the QB pecking order if Brady's suspension sticks. Brees isn't a top-three quarterback anymore, but he's one of the next QBs to consider.

Saints | Drew Brees wanted Josh Norman

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 12:04:49 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees was willing to amend his contract in order to acquire Washington Redskins CB Josh Norman.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is at the point in his career where he'll really do anything just to give the Saints the best chance to pursue a championship. Defense could be a big issue for New Orleans again in 2016, but that only means that Brees will likely still be passing frequently. He's a top QB1 again this season.

Saints | Drew Brees talks rekindled

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 07:56:32 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees' agents have renewed talks with the Saints on a four-year extension Wednesday, March 23. Brees has one year left on his deal.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is in that window of fantasy quarterbacks just below the top three or four, but he remains a solid QB1.

Saints | Drew Brees confident in extension

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 16:42:32 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is confident he'll reach a contract extension with the Saints, and he wants to play for New Orleans for the rest of his career. "So talks are ongoing, and I don't know if that is something that will be done next week or before the end of the year or next year or when. But obviously, I want to be a Saint for the rest of my career, and I think I've got a lot of good years left," Brees said. He's in the final year of a five-year, $100 million deal and has a $30 million salary cap hit in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is 37 now and is no longer a top-tier elite fantasy quarterback worth taking in one of the first two rounds, but he still has enough weapons around him in New Orleans to put up QB1 numbers most weeks.

Saints | Drew Brees to get $22 M on new contract?

Sat, 19 Mar 2016 13:09:52 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees doesn't appear to be close to finalizing an extension with the team, but there is reason to believe his average salary will range somewhere between $22 to $23 million.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is set to count $30 million against the cap in 2016, so the question is not if, but when, something will get done this offseason. The 37-year-old isn't going to leave New Orleans anytime soon and can be expected to be a solid QB1 as long as he remains there.

Saints | Drew Brees has leverage for new deal

Sat, 05 Mar 2016 20:56:14 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is due to count $30 million against the salary cap in 2016, and because he has received the franchise tag twice before in his career, he would cost the Saints $43.2 million in 2017 if he were to be tagged.

Fantasy Tip: In order to lower Brees' cap hit for this year and beyond, New Orleans has to sign Brees to an extension. Even with an extension, Brees should end up being among the highest-paid players at his position, and he should be a safe bet to finish as a QB1 again in 2016.

Saints | Drew Brees deal could be easy

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 16:13:12 -0800

A deal for New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is expected to get done very easily, according to head coach Sean Payton. Payton said general manager Mickey Loomis and Brees' agent, Tom Condon, have already spoken about a new deal. Brees would currently count $30 million against the salary cap, but an extension beyond 2016 could lower that number.

Fantasy Tip: It seems highly likely at this point that the Saints will sign their star quarterback to an extension. Assuming he stays healthy, Brees is a lock to be near the top of the NFL in passing yards and in QB1 territory by season's end.
