New Orleans Gazette:
In what has been described as a "developing situation", the New Orleans Saints have quietly acknowledged that there have been subtle trade talks with an outside team regarding Drew Brees. "The contract situation, the bounties, the penalties leveled by the NFL", have given Brees leverage whereas he can dictate his terms. The current belief is that Drew's agent has reached out to Miami and beginning talks have started. If Miami is willing to part with either a 1st round and 2nd round pick (conditional 1st), this deal may happen before the draft. Brees has been tendered as an exclusive agent, but refuses to sign his tender.
