SAINTS STUFF:

Hitting the NFC South hot spots - NFC South Blog - ESPN
Sebastian in New Orleans asks if safety Darren Sharper might retire and take over as New Orleans’ defensive backs coach.

Pat Yasinskas: That’s going to be up to Sharper. Yes, it appears his career is near the end, and he’s a bright guy who certainly could go into coaching if he chooses. But Sharper also has the skills to go into broadcasting (and already has done some of that). The life of an assistant coach isn’t very glamorous and the hours are brutal. A guy like Sharper probably could earn a lot more money as a broadcaster, and the hours wouldn’t be nearly as long.

NFL.com news: Entire NFL could be affected by Manning's contract status
Let's take a quick look at Saints quarterback Drew Brees. He is entering the last year of his contract at $7.4 million. He would be a free agent next year, if he doesn't negotiate a long-term deal. The franchise-tag value could be close to $19 million by that time, which means Brees would basically get $10 million more than the 120 percent raise would have given him if Manning and Vick were not franchised.
