Kristian Garic of WWL.com is reporting that QB Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints have nearly completed his new contract:

"As early as Friday morning... or at the latest by Monday," Garic said a contract could "very possibly" be signed.

He says, "The two sides have really closed the gap, and it may be just minor details at this point."

Minor details? By Friday or Monday? I sure like the sound of that!

Go Mickey, Go! Go Condon, Go! Close that gap! Close that gap!!
