If Saints don't make a deal with Drew Brees, then the Broncos should

Its easy to see what the tea leaves say about Drew Brees and the possibility that a future Hall of Fame quarterback actually hits the open market when free agency formally opens Wednesday in the NFL.

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton has publicly declared that hes not the least bit worried that his franchise quarterback could become an unrestricted free agent Wednesday afternoon. When asked about a new contract for Brees on the set of NFL Live, Payton said, "I know its going to get done."

Brees also has openly declared his desire to sign a new deal with the Saints, and the team's decision-makers met with Brees agent -- Tom Condon -- at the recent NFL scouting combine.

Still, there's no deal yet.

But if the negotiating window opens Monday and the Saints still havent signed Brees, then Denver Broncos general manager John Elway should scroll through the ol contacts on his cellphone, ring up Condon and ask the multi-million dollar question.

How much?

The Broncos essentially went north of $90 million, plenty of it guaranteed, to sign Peyton Manning when they werent even sure the quarterback would return to anything close to 100 percent from a missed 2011 season after his fourth neck surgery. So, this ain't their first rodeo in something like this.
