Drew Brees rumors: Saints can't use franchise tag

Wide receiver Nelson Agholor and the Eagles like to play an aggressive style of football and take chances. It has worked well this season with Philadelphia one win away from a trip to the Super Bowl

"It's the same way I felt two days ago".

You know, just in case you thought you couldn't squeeze any more enjoyment out of what happened last night.

Former Vikings linebacker Ben Leber, a KFAN analyst, shared that Payton did the Vikings Skol chant gesture after New Orleans' Wil Lutz kicked a 43-yard field goal to give the Saints the lead.

"I'm not in the mood to make anything secretive", Brees said, per ESPN's Mike Triplett. "So, I do feel like that there is a window of opportunity there".

Brees and the Saints are two days removed from their heartbreaking 29-24 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Divisional Round, but the veteran gunslinger noted he always has envisioned himself playing for New Orleans in 2018.

Though there might not be any drama surrounding where Brees winds up, it will be interesting to see what his next deal looks like.

Because of a clause in his current contract, the Saints can not use the franchise tag to retain Brees, so retaining him means a multi-year agreement. So they will have to agree to a new contract at some point before March 16 to keep other suitors from getting a crack at him.

Unless sides find a quick resolution, Brees will be a free agent when the new league year opens in March. I was in the 10th row right behind (Payton). "We've got a lot of work to do and a lot of areas we've got to address". I've been a part of talented teams in the past throughout my career, though, that have not lived up to expectations.

Coming off his best draft since 2006 with All-Pro rookie first pick cornerback Marshon Lattimore along with top contributors such as likely rookie of the year running back Alvin Kamara in the third round and safety Marcus Williams and offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk in the second round, Payton sounded positive about the future after an 11-5 NFC South title season and 1-1 playoff run. "I think we do have a talented team, I know that each year you have to go out and prove it".
