Close to extension per a league source. A little skeptical because it doesn't shed any new information... But it's something at least!!

Our cap would be better next year if we don't do an extension but who wants to go into next year with Brees as a free agent? Not me so let's get this deal done and maybe look into a trade for a Guard that we can now afford.

As disheartening as this preseason has been at times, this would definitely be a happy energy boost for the start of the season.

So it seems that it is around 24-25 million per year, and I don't have a problem with that if it allow us to cut him by year 3 without a big cap hit. Not that I want this to happen, but we should be prepared for the uncertainty.

I'm hoping for a 3 year 10 million total deal but I am realistically expecting 4yrs 24 per year and honestly I would be happy with that at this point.

Brees &amp; Saints Close to Extension

Rappaport claims they are not close... I dont really think he knows what he is talking about... Just passing it along... Just saw it on the ticker on NFL network so no link.
