Reports say that another big name QB is going to be getting his payday soon.
Drew Brees, who helped the Saints win their first Super Bowl two years ago, is next on the list of QB’s that will be getting an extension from the team in the Big Easy.
Peyton Manning of the Colts just got his big deal, and Michael Vick just scored a $100 million dollar deal from the Eagles, meaning that Brees’ agent, Tom Condon, has something to go off of when talking to New Orleans.
Brees is entering the final season of a $60 million, six-year contract. “I did see it,” Brees said of Vick’s contract, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “It looks like a nice contract. Obviously I don’t know any of the details other than the six years and $100 million.”
Could Brees be the next quarterback to join the $100 million club, although the Vick numbers are inflated by a final year that will void. “They’ve been in discussions,” Brees said. “That’s been ongoing.”
