The New Orleans Saints and future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees will have to work out a new contract before the start of free agency. Should that not happen, Brees will become an unrestricted free agent next month. There’s no expectation that Brees will move on to another team. Both the Saints’ brass and the quarterback himself have said he’ll return next season. Now, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Brees and the Saints are expected to talk about a short-term deal during the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis next week. More than that, the Pro Bowler is expected to demand between $20 and $25 million annually, a number that would come in lower than what Jimmy Garoppolo received from the San Francisco 49ers earlier in the month.
