Sean Payton believes Taysom Hill's contract negotiation will 'take a little more work' than that of Drew Brees (1 Viewer)

The Saints have some decisions to make at quarterback

By Tyler Sullivan | CBS Sports

The New Orleans Saints found out this week that quarterback Drew Brees will return for the 2020 season after mulling retirement following the 2019 campaign. Now that the team knows he's all in for next year, they'll have to lock up Brees, who is technically set to be an unrestricted free agent later this offseason, to a new contract.

Of course, there's nothing to really worry about in that respect for the Saints as Brees has illustrated that it's New Orleans-or-bust when it comes to his desire to continue his NFL career. This isn't uncharted territory for the two sides either, as they've grown somewhat accustomed to the year-by-year status for No. 9.

"Every time that subject has come up -- and it's come up a number of times ... where they're working on a a contract and they always seem to get it done in an efficient manner," Saints head coach Sean Payton told WWL Radio on Wednesday regarding the pending negations between the club and Brees, via NOLA.com. "I think that won't be any different this time around."
