According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, a certain New Orleans media outlet believes a long-term deal between Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints will be signed this Friday.
Florio disguised this little rumor nugget in a short humdrum article about the Drew Brees contract negotiations. Here's exactly what he says:
There could be reason soon for more widespread optimism. We've caught wind of a looming report from one of the New Orleans media outlets that Brees will sign a long-term deal on Friday.
We've been down this road many times before so take that for what it's worth. Could be something. Probably nothing. Just wanted to pass it along.
