Drew Brees Rejected Really, Really Big Contract Offer, According To Report

Atlanta Falcons news isn't the only locally relevant pro football news of the season. No sir! Let's also continue to keep an eye on the New Orleans Saints, who don't seem to be having the easiest time re-signing their star quarterback*. Like Brent Grimes, Drew Brees doesn't want to be franchised, but it looks like it goes farther than that, according to CBS' Saints beat man, Larry Holder:

Brees will eventually sign a new deal with the Saints. Let's not get our hopes up at all about him leaving the NFC South and getting to face Chase Daniel every year. But you'll kindly permit us to enjoy reports like this one, won't you?

* You cannot deny this is true. The easiest possible re-signing would be Drew Brees offering to accept a new, one-year, veteran's minimum contract every year. He would be unwise to do this, but it would be easy.
