Multiple reports say star quarterback Drew Brees has agreed to a 50-million-dollar two-year-deal with the saints. A reported 27-million-dollars is guaranteed. Saints radio color analyst Deuce McAllister says it’s actually a one year deal as there’s a team option after the first year.
The New Orleans coaching staff and management are starting to feel the crunch of time. Brees is entering his 18th season. McAllister says even though it’s a good deal for the team and Brees both, the Saints need to start thinking about life after Brees decides to hang it up.
After just coming up short in making it to the NFC Championship Game, McAlister says Brees feels like the team still has a chance of making it to the Super Bowl and is willing to do what it takes to get there one more time.
