Didn’t he say it would be about three weeks before super bowl week? I feel we will get some kind of announcement tomorrow in the evening that is prime time for nfl news ... just a feeling that is all

The first important day of the offseason is March 10th, which is the last day that teams can franchise or transition tag players. While I don't think the Saints would do Teddy dirty by franchising him, they'd want the option on the table if Brees were to retire. Could help in negotiations.

I'd imagine Drew won't wait until the 11th hour either. My guess is he will announce his decision around March 1st. So we've got about two and a half more weeks of this craziness.

I think the Saints and Drew know for the most part, it's just about respect and coordination at this point. It's hard for me to believe that some type of preliminary discussion hasn't occurred before this year. It may not have been definitive but I'm sure they've asked him when he would think abut retiring.

Drew Brees needs to make his decision. At this point it feels as if he's pulling a Bret Favre.
In what sense? Really look at the Favre situation and see if you want to stick by that statement.

This is how I see it too. There's no way the front office is sitting around in limbo with no clue as to what their HoF QB is going to do. Drew's retirement is going to be a franchise altering situation so you have to think a plan is in place.

I think the Saints need to respectfully make the decision for him. It’s just bad business to give $40 million to a guy in his 40s who now struggles to finish a season strong

Just too bad the Saints don’t look as if they have the balls to do it
Financially it's not an ideal situation but Drew still gives us the best chance to win. If he still wants to play I don't think they have much of a choice.

If Brady retired today, Brees probably goes with him... Brady playing again ??? I’ll bet my salary drew comes back lol. At this point his legacy is those records he isn’t letting tom steal that ! My .02

We’ve been having “the best chance to win” with Drew for over a decade. And all we do is continue to fall short

Albeit it’s not all on him, still he bares some of the blame. Especially for recent events

Of course they have a choice. They can keep what they don’t owe him n use it in other areas to improve the team. Having Drew onboard doesn’t necessarily make u a contender anymore so quit paying him like he does. That simple
