The New Orleans Saints and quarterback Drew Brees have resumed contract talks, with Brees seeking a Kobe Bryant type deal during his final years.
According to Jason La Canfora — Brees is seeking a four-year, $100 million deal — that would place him among the highest paid players in NFL history.
Brees has been seeking a 4yr deal worth $100M I'm told. He doesn't want to negotiate in-season. We'll see if something can get done
