According to ESPN’s John Clayton, the New Orleans Saints and quarterback Drew Brees are still about $1 million apart from agreeing on a new contract.

“They’re really about a million dollars apart as far as trying to get a deal done,” said Clayton.

If both sides are so close to getting a deal done, the only reason I can think that they haven’t finalized anything,  is because the Saints can’t agree on how much guaranteed money they’re willing to give Brees.
