Its decision time for Loomis and Payton.

Keeping Drew might cost crucial young players that are essential to our future. We cannot mortgage the future based on what ifs and maybes.

Keeping Drew can hurt us in another way as well. Even if we did have a " good year " , anything short of winning it all is going to hurt badly and resulting poor draft positioning for next year.

So we could potentially find ourselves , out of key players who we couldnt afford to pay to keep Drew one more year , and with horrible draft positioning next year with Drew in my opinion definitely retiring at next seasons end.

I think theres a win for our franchise , that ensures we get our guy under center for the next decade or more to come without us having to lose key players.

It is better to let go a year early than a year too late.

Extend either Taysom Hill or Teddy Bridgewater, they will be our new Starter. Now either they prove to be Studs as starters and Taysom is Steve Young or Teddy B is legit or we suck. Yay !

Why is this good news ? Because , just as excited as everyone is about Joe Burrow this year , Everyone will be more excited about Trevor Lawrence next year. Trevor's shown more consistent play in multiple seasons.

Having a bad year at the right time could net us a franchise QB to go with our young vibrant budding team.

If we have the chops to believe we could get Burrow 20 something picks away this year , we could definitely grab Lawrence next year much closer.


And that's if things go badly !


Taysom or Teddy could prove to be Studs at the controls full time.

In any event we get our answers, and we get our QB guaranteed. If we get greedy today , we may lose out on everything tomorrow.


Goodbyes are never fun.

I am not sure you have been watching very closely but this team is loaded with young talent. Drew is still top 10 if not top 5. His connection with Sean is legondary. So you want to interrupt back to back 13-3 on some premise that we can do better? Stop it. Draft another stud we and the Super Bowl is definitely in play. I repeat. Stop it

This.

All day.
I think you have to throw the $20 mil thought out the window because it just is what it is and you can do nothing about it. The real question is how much can pay Brees and then add $20 mil cap on top of that. Does Brees agree to $25 mil salary and the team take a $45 mil cap hit this year OR do they kick $20 mil dead money to next year.

I disagree with the OP that the saints would in any danger of competing for a top pick in 2021 draft. If the defense stays the same the Payton will have the offense running with whoever is at QB and they will still be a playoff contender.

I hear you but if he wants to play, you can at least spread it across two years with a second voidable year.

If the team has a good year but fall in the playoffs , folks will be upset.
If the team 4-12 or 7-9, folks will be upset.
Let Loomis and Payton and handle this. Enjoy the good days will we still have them. Saints fans take things for granted these days.

There is no "dilemma". Only attention seeking clowns trying to generate one.
Sorry I seem to have upset you. I'm just curious as to what happens if we win 11 games get flatlined by the vikings again and now we have a 43 year old QB, no heir apparent because we let BW and TH walk.

There is definitely a dilemma at hand. Dont kid yourself.

Drew is going through his own dilemma on whether or not he should return.

What you mad at me for ?

You seem to think Brees has another 10 years in him.

I’ve been saying for a year that Drew will sign a 2 year extension and play just 1 more. Kicking the can down the road another year. I maintain he can play longer but I think this is the last year
