Cha-Ching! Drew Brees gets a record deal with the Saints

Friday, July 13th 2012

So it appears holding out is good---at least for Drew Brees. His holdout out with the Saints has paid off in a historic deal. Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints have agreed to a five-year, $100 million contract that includes a first-year take in 2012 of $40 million, according to league, players union, and team sources. Day-um!!! The money is considered by all parties involved to be an NFL-record $60 million, though there are contractual outs for the Saints before he would receive all of that money. Even still, that's alot of freakin' money! So, shout out to the New Orleans Saints for doing the right thing. I guess they could have saved some money if they would have agreed to terms earlier. Who knows. Either way the deal is done. Thank you Brees-us! Your Jersey Girlfriend, ~Angela Davis
