Saints News, 9/7/16: Brees Contract is Five Years, Voids After Two

New, comments

Amidst the seemingly endless talk of Drew Brees potentially closing his career somewhere other than New Orleans, the two sides have finally agreed on a deal. Tom Condon's client and the Saints have agreed to a five year deal that will void after two, after the sticking point seemed to be based around the third year. The Saints now have an out, albeit an expensive one.
