I had an internal bet that Dwight Howard would get traded before Drew Brees would sign a contract with the New Orleans Saints. The QB has been debating his contract for what seems like forever. If you remember he was not happy with the Saints for not giving him a long-term commitment. Now Brees has agreed to a five-year contract for $100 million. Of that he is guaranteed $60 million.
For this season alone Brees will make $40 million. So if we have learned anything from this Brees debacle it’s that waiting does pay off. Brees has been sitting out of off-season practices while waiting for a good offer. And according to his Twitter Brees is one happy man, “Deal is Done! Love you, Who Dat Nation. See you soon!”
So congrats Brees. You are playing for the most corrupt team in league.
