ESPN Pursuing Drew Brees For Monday Night Football

By Clay Travis | OKTC

So far ESPN has missed on both former quarterback targets.

Just before his contract hit the open market, Romo signed a deal worth $18 million a year to stay with CBS. Romo’s contract came shortly after Outkick reported that Romo’s yearly salary demands had pushed past $15 million a year. After missing out on a chance for Romo, ESPN pivoted and chased Peyton Manning, who, according to a report in the New York Post, ultimately turned down an eight-figure deal from the network to enter the Monday Night Football booth.

The double rejections have left ESPN uncertain what to do with their Monday Night Football booth of the future.

So who is ESPN’s latest target?

Another top quarterback, only this one is still playing.

Lack of QB Contingency Plan is the Last Thing Holding Saints Back From Super Bowl Contention

The New Orleans Saints have carved out quite a niche when it comes to heartbreaking, soul-crushing playoff exits. Entering the new league year, the Saints are hell-bent on competing for the Super Bowl, and that's exactly as it should be. They brought back Drew Brees for another two years, while also signing huge free agents in safety Malcolm Jenkins and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

New Orleans' roster is absolutely stacked, but their one weakness is their backup quarterback situation. Given Drew Brees' age, that alone could keep them out of Super Bowl contention.

Sean Payton leaves no stones unturned.

It's why the New Orleans Saints were able to find Deonte Harris, an unknown return specialist from tiny Assumption College who went on to become an All-Pro player as a rookie this past season.

It's how they ended up drafting University of Manitoba defensive lineman David Onyemata, a diamond in the rough at the time who first started playing football just five years before the Saints drafted him.

Saints By Position: Top 5 tight ends in franchise history

  • News source: Ken Trahan
  • Replies: 0
One of the most important positions which requires a multiple skill set is the tight end position.

There are tight ends who are huge in the running game as excellent blockers at the point of attack. There are tight ends who are excellent receivers who can get up the seam or down the field, stretch a defense and make plays.

In the 53-year history of the franchise, the New Orleans Saints had had both types of tight ends and a few who could handle both aspects quite...

NFL says draft still a go despite reasonable concerns

The NFL sent out a memo confirming the 202p draft will still be held April 23-25 as planned. Roger Goodell sent out a warning to teams not to publicly criticize the league’s stance. It was reported earlier that some teams would rather postpone the draft until a later date.

The big question from teams is the lack of medical follow-up on some players like quarterback Tua Tagovailoa who had hip surgery. He was not able to work out at the combine.
