  • Would Cowboys sack Dak Prescott if Drew Brees hit the open market

Brees has said all along that he has no plans to leave New Orleans, and coaches and ownership have made it seem like he will be back. Gang Green is entering free agency - which officially begins at 4 p.m. Wednesday - with the most cap space in the National Football League at $89,879,171.

Two people familiar with the contract say Brees has agreed to a two-year, $50 million extension with the New Orleans Saints.

Brees is due $27 million in guaranteed money, which essentially makes it a one-year deal with an option to continue the relationship in 2019 if all continues to go well. It's really no sweat for New Orleans, though. Other teams such as the Denver Broncos are also looking for a franchise quarterback and they could take shots at Brees and Cousins as well.

Not much other than rumors of interest from various teams happened on the first day of the tampering period, with the most notable story coming out of New Orleans byway of Minneapolis.

That's up from a November forecast of 1.2% but it would still see the United Kingdom lagging behind all other G20 countries. Mr Hammond said that review would be used to allocate the money to different services in 2020-21 and beyond.

Let the bidding war for Drew Brees begin.

"I don't think that anybody thinks that Kirk Cousins is worth more on the open market than Drew Brees", fellow columnist Jeff Duncan said. But he completed 72 percent of his passes and threw for 23 touchdowns. The Saints have a team capable of returning to a Super Bowl. Minnesota can offer more money, a better receiving corps and the kind of defense the Saints have never been able to build for their quarterback. If not for the insane ending of their playoff loss to the Vikings, they would have been one step away from another Super Bowl.

The 39-year-old future Hall-of-Famer presumably is chasing after another Super Bowl ring before his career ends.
