According to a tweet by New Orleans reporter Jennifer Hale, the Drew Brees contract saga may be coming to a close. “Drew Brees contract negotiations are moving forward, and progress is being made. Latest on Fox 8!,” the NFL sideline reporter tweeted earlier today.
An earlier tweet by Hale was even more positive. “I’m hearing Friday will be a very happy day for Who Dats,” Hale tweeted late Wednesday night. According to a report in the Chicago Tribune, the deal will be worth about $19 million per year. This is likely welcome news for the New Orleans fan base as the bounty scandal has engulfed the Saints in negative media coverage for several months now.
