A FRANCHISE TAG?!? YOU’VE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME
This won’t be like many other posts. This is something plain and simple in questioning the New Orleans Saints, WHY WAS DREW BREES GIVEN THE FRANCHISE TAG? Has he not proven himself as one of THE elite quarterbacks of this league. Last year he broke Dan Marino’s record and had one of the best numbers of a quarterback this past season. Sources around the league said as recently as yesterday that the Saints and Brees’ agent had yet to come to an agreement about a contract. There are a few reasons why I see this has happened. One of those reasons being that they want a little more time to build a better team around Brees in order to bring another Super Bowl back to New Orleans. Another reason would be exactly how long will Brees be able to compete with all the younger quarterbacks that have yet to set foot in the league. There’s some unanswered questions about this and yes a few logical explanations. But in my opinion, pay the man his money so he can bring another championship back to New Orleans.
