Without deal, Brees' agent can field offers from other teams today

Without deal, Brees' agent can field offers from other teams today

The Saints only have until Wednesday to sign Brees to a new deal or they're hit with an $18 million dead cap charge for Brees whether he's on their roster or not.

Most people have not taken Brees as an unrestricted free agent very seriously, because he's at the very end of his National Football League career and it seemed like a no-brainer that he and the Saints would come together on a deal. However, the fact that Brees remains unsigned and that no concrete reports of progress on negotiations have surfaced provides a glimmer of chance that he is wearing a different uniform in 2018.

He can make a lot more money pursuing his options as a free agent. Including the thing that would have been unthinkable as Brees walked off the field in Minneapolis on January 14 - that, come March 14, he'll be returning to Minneapolis to become the team's new quarterback.

Cousins may be an upgrade Case Keenum, but it's hard to envision him improving on the level of play Keenum reached in 2017. Well, Brees is technically available.

Strief played in 10 post season games, second most in club history, with 4 starts.

I'd expect a contract to still get worked out, because it makes way too much sense, but it's fair to surmise that the two sides now disagree on Brees' value.

However, the Vikings no doubt have Brees' attention. But Brees is much, much more than a quality starting quarterback - he's an elite, future Hall-of-Fame quarterback.

But we've reached the point on the clock where simply chalking up Brees' Saints return as a fait accompli is a risky proposition.

Day 1 of the "legal tampering" period has not disappointed. Of course Brees is the better player, but Cousins is younger and still has room to grow. Even with Brees likely to find a way to stay in New Orleans, there is value in making another NFC contender pay a fair price to keep its team together.

Me too, Mr. Mays.
