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.

The LHSAA Annual Convention convenes today and on Friday, high school principals will vote on a number of proposals. A vote will NOT be taken on whether to end the split playoff in football. But North Vermilion Principal Tommy Byler has a proposal to even up the number of schools that play each classification in an effort to prevent one or two win teams from making the playoffs on the non-select side.

He joined the football team as a walk-on in 2016 after spending six years in the Pittsburgh Pirates minor league system. Von Rosenberg was a standout pitcher at Zachary High, but never made it to the majors. Now he’s trying to help LSU football win and be a good teammate

Von Rosenberg replaced Josh Growden this past week as the Australian struggled. Von Rosenberg punted twice for a solid 45-yard average. He admits he was nervous for his first punt in the home opener
