Saints quarterback Drew Brees was asked twice Tuesday whether he’ll report to the Saints’ offseason workouts next week, given he’s yet to sign his team’s one-year franchise tag offer.
Brees didn’t give a straight answer either time.
“What I can say in regards to my contract,” Brees said at the La Costa Resort and Spa, where his annual celebrity golf tournament will be played next month, “is that we’re continuing to work hard on a long-term deal, and that’s really all I can say about it.”
Then came the reporter’s second try to see if Brees would commit to his presence next week.
“We’re continuing to work on a long-term deal,” Brees said with a smile, “and I’m very hopeful we can accomplish that sooner rather than later.”
