Report: Guaranteed money is holding up an extension for Drew Brees
The New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees are hoping to come up with a long term deal for his services, but according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports there is one little problem.
At this point, the amount of guaranteed money seems to be holding the process up, according to the report.
“Two league sources pegged a Brees extension as landing somewhere in the neighborhood of four years and $95 million to $100 million, with guaranteed money likely to exceed $65 million,” per Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports. “For now, one league source said the asking price on the extension has played a part in the talks failing to progress.”
That is a lot of money to give a 37 year old quarterback. What do you think? Pay the man or let him walk?
