According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN the New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees have reached an agreement on a new 5 deal worth reportedly $100 million, with $60 million guaranteed in the first 3 years.

The deal was completed on to the heels of the deadline for the time to negotiate a long term contact. Had they not been able to come to terms, Brees would’ve had to play under the franchise tag or sit out the season.

While the situation was dragged out a few weeks before training camp, anybody who thought the Saints were going to enter training camp without their best player signed is crazy. With all the negative publicity surrounding the Saints with bounty gate, and the alleged sound tapping the opponents sidelines, they weren’t gong to allow this situation to plague them through out the end of the summer.
