With the latest news on the New Orleans Saints, quarterback Drew Brees has to be more than disappointed and perhaps wanting out of the Saints organization all together. It is rumored that his agent, Tom Condon is "baffled" by how slowly long-term contract negotiations have been going with the Saints. The Saints slapped Brees with the franchise tag which concerned many fans, NFL analysts, and teammates. The contract not being extended will grow into a bigger and bigger distraction as the weeks pass by, and Drew Brees cannot be happy. He has been the best quarterback the last couple years by the numbers, he is a leader to his teammates, and a hero to his community yet the Saints organization cannot open the vault to the focal point of their entire team. In the process, the New Orlean Saints has lost a number of key free agents that put their team in contention, and besides that the organization has been distroyed by the 'Bounty Gate' scandal. Now another 'Spy Gate' scandal, which is embarassing to a quarterback who plays his heart out for the game he loves, a game his team is being labeled as 'cheaters', 'dirty', and 'disrespectful'. So the question is could Drew Brees be lured away from the city that he loves and the fans that adore him more than their own families?
Could Scott Pioli use Clark Hunt's money to acquire Drew Brees? We've heard the rumors that Tom Condon doesn't like Pioli during the Manning Free Agency Frenzy, but is it even financially possible that the Chiefs could bring Drew Brees to the Kansas City Chiefs? Would Condon allow Manning and Brees to square off in the same conference?
As part of this 'wishful thinking' exercise and to pass the time between now and Thursday, what legitimate trade can you put together to acquire Drew Brees and what kind of contract could you offer? Keep in mind that Peyton Manning set the bar with a 5-year, $96-million dollar deal, Matt Cassel is due $5.25-million in 2012, the Chiefs are around $18-million under the 2012 cap, Dorsey & Albert are in their finalcontract year, & we can still trade draft picks this year. Have fun!!! And GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
