Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk wrote Friday that although both sides were reportedly set to meet last week in Indianapolis, "those discussions have led to no concrete signs that a deal is coming".
An undersized, break-the-mold quarterback from Purdue named Drew Brees. The Saints obviously would prefer to work out a new contract before then, allowing them to spread out Brees' cap costs into future years.
And if the gates of negotiation formally open Monday, and Brees still doesn't have that hey-it's-no-problem deal with the Saints, the Broncos should make a call and get right to the bottom line. Well, Brees is technically available.
Tom Pelissero of NFL Network said the Vikings reached out to representatives for several quarterbacks as the NFL free-agent negotiating window began Monday afternoon.
Ramczyk, a late first round draft choice previous year, blossomed his rookie season, much of which he spent at right tackle after Strief's Week 4 knee injury, which wound up ending the veteran lineman's season. He also might be able to find a better path to the Super Bowl than with the Saints. Cousins is certainly a quality starting quarterback, and potentially better than that.
Donald Trump blocks $150b Qualcomm takeover by Broadcom on national security grounds
Shares of Broadcom rose less than 1.0 percent to $264.10 in after hours trade while Qualcomm fell 4.3 percent to $60.14. The Treasury Department's letter was addressed to lawyers for Broadcom and Qualcomm, and was made public by Qualcomm.
It still remains likely Brees, a New Orleans institution who has maintained he wants to finish his career with the franchise he helped resuscitate, does exactly that and Minnesota's dabbling in the Brees waters is simply a matter of due diligence and even posturing with Cousins and his reps.
Brees' roots in the New Orleans community are beyond deep.
The situation is worth monitoring as the legal tampering period arrives.
When it finally does get done, chances are Brees' contract will look an very bad lot like that last extension he signed just four days before the 2016 season opener.
Me too, Mr. Mays.
