Anyone hear he has filed a grievance against Saints for not negotiating in good faith. Dude may be a nice guy but he is still a douche. 18 million not enough eh. These guys are so out of touch with reality.
Give me a break. Brees is the NO Saints. No Brees, no compete. They're lucky he doesn't ask for part ownership....
Peyton manning was the Indianapolis Colts. Irsay wanted to make Peyton Manning the highest paid ever by a lot, but Manning said no, use some of it to bring people here and pay others to stay. Irsay went down to 18 mill and Peyton said again to bring it down, but Irsay wouldn't pay him less than Brady.
"While I appreciate Jim Irsay offering to make me the highest-paid player, I told him I'd rather he save that money and keep whoever it is . . . Joe Addai, Charlie Johnson, whoever that may be.
"I'm willing to take less than they've offered if they are going to take that money to keep players we need to keep and go get other players. All I want is for them to have the cap and the cash to keep the players they want to keep and to sign other players.''
That's what Manning said.
Brees is getting offered 19 mill a year and is saying he wants more. How selfish can someone be.
Just one more reason why I love Peyton Manning
