Come on man. Seriously. Do we even need to be explaining to you why we think this thread is pointless?

As we have the rights to Drew via the tag, we can wait till Peyton signs elsewhere, then trade Drew and a few other players for the better player.

Or we could just keep the guy that won the Superbowl more recently....

We can't trade Drew.. we only hold the exclusive rights to negotiate with him. To trade him, he would have to sign the tag.. and he won't.

The saints would be crazy to let drew go. The only guy who plays on his level as of today is rodgers. Manning would be a great option,only if drew morphed into carson palmer and said I'd rather sit out the season than play for the saints. What I don't understand is why a guy who has already made 15 million per year(for example) trying to milk it for a couple million more. In some ways it makes sense,in others it so doesn't.

The Tag protects immediate team interest only. It's a stopgap only and can be withdrawn by the team at any time. It binds Drew, not the team. If there is a deal to be made that serves all parties, it's going to be hashed about. Drew can sign anywhere he wants if it serves all parties. It's business.
They can retag him again next year if he doesn't agree to a long term deal.

Now if you had said just that, not so many would have disagreed. I think your problem here, and the reason so many have "face-palmed", is you said in the OP that "Drew will sign (somewhere) first, I think." And the title of your post is asking how much Drew's next move will influence Peyton's, which also assumes Drew will make a move before Peyton.

Thing is, Peyton will sign somewhere within a few days, at most. Drew is tagged, and even if some weird eventuality occurs (which isn't out of the question, by any means), it isn't going to happen for weeks, or more likely, months... or even after next season.

Of course Drew's situation is linked with Bounty-gate, and Manning's choices (and eventual contract). I've posted on that myself. Peyton's contract most certainly will influence Drew's, and Loomis's, decisions. Bounty-gate and upcoming penalties could make Drew (heaven forbid) turn sour on the Saints. I don't think it will, but it's a legitimate possibility.

But there's no way Drew is going to sign anywhere else before Peyton. Peyton's shopping and on the fast track. Drew is tagged and negotiating (can ONLY negotiate) with the Saints.

Bounty-gate won't influence Drew Brees one bit.

I'm not threatened in the least by the detractors. Face palm away. Drew's not signed...Our greatly coached player is just now less valuable than a great player coach. This adjustment story is not over.
