According to Mike Triplett of NOLA.com, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees doesn’t plan on showing up for the beginning of Monday’s offseason workouts.
Brees refuses to sign the franchise tender the Saints placed on him, he’s still waiting for the long-term contract that he deserves.
“It is very upsetting to him not being there Monday,” said Triplett’s source. “He wants to be there for his teammates.”
During a press conference on Friday, Saints owner Tom Benson indicated that they were close to signing Brees, but I don’t buy it. I think Benson is just trying to keep him fan base calm for the moment.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
