Brees Reportedly “Livid” About Getting the Franchise Tag – Says He Won’t Sign Tender

Uh Oh.

Don’t look now, but the best player the Saints have isn’t too happy these days.

WIST-AM in New Orleans reports that QB Drew Brees is “livid” about getting the dreaded tag on Monday – a tag mind you that will pay him about $17 mil in 2012.

The report says that Brees is NOT going to sign the teams tender, and is still desiring to get a long term deal with the team done before 2012.

Brees and the Saints have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal. If the two sides take the issue of Brees’ contract to that deadline, and Brees does not capitulate and sign the tender, he could be absent for the entirety of the team’s off-season workout program, mini-camps and OTAs.

It sounds like things could ugly between the Saints and Brees.
