New Orleans Saints: Tom Benson, Drew Brees Happy With Deal, Focus On Hosting Team in SB

After months of going back and forward in an attempt to settle a deal, the New Orleans Saints and quarterback Drew Brees finally agreed to a 5-year, $100 million deal Friday afternoon.According to the team’s press release, the full disclosure of Brees’ well-deserved contract has not been publically disclosed. However, Saints’ owner/chairman of the board Tom Benson released a statement as he is elated that his quarterback is signed and is ready to host his team in the Super Bowl in New Orleans in February:

“Congratulations are in order for our organization, our city, Drew and Brittany and certainly for Mickey Loomis and his staff for all of the hard work put in to make this possible. Now we must turn our focus to getting ready for the start of training camp and to keeping with our goal of being the first team in NFL history to host and play in a Super Bowl.”

Brees missed all the Saints’ offseason workouts, due to his holdout for a long-term deal. Brees was tagged with the organization’s exclusive franchise label, preventing him from negotiating with another team.

If an agreement was not settled between the Saints and Brees, Brees would had to settle for the team’s one-year tender, if he wanted to play in the 2012 season. The tender for signal callers is $16.3 million, averaging out the top five highest-paid NFL quarterbacks.

Clearly, an agreement is settled, and Brees (33) expressed his excitement on Twitter, “Deal is Done! Love you, Who Dat Nation. See you soon!”

    The world is like a hillside. As long as you are not standing at the apex, someone will always be taller than you. When you look up for a long time, you must look down at the right time. We are all ordinary people.

    Sometimes, we are not waiting for someone or anything, we are waiting for time, waiting for time to change ourselves. 2. If someone in your life wants to step you under your feet, don’t think that life has mistreated you.

    Time will always give you the answer, who is the one who really hurts you and who really cares about you; who is who you care about but who cares nothing about you. Some people are not worth cherishing too much, while others are worth cherishing

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!|
