The New Orleans Saints cannot wait for training camp to begin, but first, the front office must get QB Drew Brees' signature on a contract for the coming season.
Granted, the offseason has been rough with the controversy surrounding BountyGate. The fanbase has patiently waited for this marathon negotiation session to end and finally put an exclamation point on this offseason. Hopefully, both sides can come to an agreement and get back to the business of winning football games.
Brees will earn his money this year, as he has the difficult task of leading the Saints through a season of uncertainty. He will become the lone voice of the franchise all year long. Brees must instill pride inside the locker room, but make everyone aware that they’re wearing a large bull’s eye on their chest. If he plays well, chances are we will see the Saints once again in the playoffs.
