[QUOTE=crasherino;4381909]What a disaster that could be - especially if Brees is pissed off about it. Its one thing to tag a dude like Johnny Abe and have him be disgruntled and have him sit out all of training camp in protest (as is his right). Its quite another to flip the middle finger to Drew Brees where he may take his gripes public, decide not to report to camp and create a giant sh!tstorm for the Saints. They cannot withstand that.
That guy has all the leverage. Its fine for Loomis to posture now.....but I have no doubt that Brees will get substantially what he wants when the time comes. New Orleans has weathered Billy Joe Tolliver, Aaron Brooks, Heath Shuler, Jeff Blake being the Aints and Hurricane Katrina. They will not stand for even the possibility of Drew Brees not being their QB going forward. If Jesus Christ himself were to replace Brees, I'm not sure Loomis would get the benefit of the doubt.[/QUOTE]
Chris Mortenson said on NFL 32 one day this past week that Brees would NOT report if they franchised him.

And why should he? He's under no obligation to sign his tender til September. Let's see how the saints feel about going through camp without the face of the franchise.....and we thought Pete Kendall was a distraction
