Stephen A. Smith is right on the money. Look at how many years that it took for us to go from A. Manning to Brees. It's not his fault that this damn regime can't field a defense, or even find a damn kicker!
I would do a two year deal and do whatever it takes to draft his replacement next year. Part of our problem is being in "cap hell". Drew deserves a stature and much credit for what he has done for this team & city. This is a business and we must prepare for life after Drew Brees. We haven't been winning or making the playoffs lately and projected (means very little) to go 6-10 this season with Drew. Let's go after Watson from Clemson or one of those top team QBs coming out next year
I honestly was expecting it to be more money. I wouldn't complain at all if they signed him for that. He's far and away the best player we have on the roster. Sure it's a gamble on his health but all contracts are a gamble on the players health. I think if we have anyone on the team that will do whatever it takes to stay healthy and win it's Drew.
