Disaster Avoided: Drew Brees Signs Five-Year, $100 Million Deal

Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints will not have to worry about a potential holdout after the two parties agreed to a new five-year contract worth $100 million.

According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Brees will make $40 million in the first year of the deal with $60 million in guaranteed money coming in the first three years.

Wow.

Considering what he has meant to the Saints and the city of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, it’s a well-deserved reward for the Super Bowl XLIV MVP.

If a long-term agreement had not been reached by 4pm on Monday, Brees reportedly would not report to training camp.

Now, we can get past the image of Chase Daniel being a relevant part of our lives for the next month.
