"Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis said he has continued to stay in touch with Condon, and he would be open to making a deal at any point. "
There is paper in the fax machine. Waiting. Otherwise, franchise tag. Your move, Tom.
Brees would earn around $14 million instead of $16 million if he is franchised next year. In the past, the one-year franchise tag salary was an average of the top five salaries at a player's position. Now, that salary will be an average of the top five salaries over the past five years.
Don't think I saw this link in Dave's post...
Jenkins is now sandwiched by the signing of or the agreeing to terms of a contract for First Rounders Orakpo (#13) and Brian Cushing (#15). C'mon guys, let's get this deal done!!
The Saints reportedly faxed a contract proposal to LB Jonathan Vilma directly after the free agent period began.
All along Vilma has been New Orleans' priority re-signing and they don't want to lose him to the Buccaneers. Vilma will do better than Channing Crowder did. The 26-year-old led the Saints with 130 tackles last season.

Faxed? Mickey, you can't email a PDF attachment? Only comfortable with the hard copy "real" thing, and the squeal of your Sharp fax/copier combo? Whatever, just get it done.

The Bucs are reportedly working to set up a free agent visit with LB Jonathan Vilma.
Vilma would be viewed as a weak-side linebacker in Tampa Bay and the heir to Derrick Brooks. The Saints, however, are feverishly working to lock him up.
