Saints' QB Brees Signs New Contract

By Jim McCoy Fri 13th July SportsDrew BreesNFL

Drew Brees has agreed to a five-year, $100 million contract with the New Orleans Saints, with $60 million guaranteed. A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that Brees and the team reached agreement Friday. Brees had been tagged as the Saints' exclusive franchise player and could not negotiate with other teams.

     The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the contract has not been announced.

     Had a deal not been reached, the tender for a quarterback was worth $16.3 million. Brees would have had to play for that amount or hold out without a contract.
