.Reports emerged today that Drew Brees, the Saints’ Superbowl-winning QB, will not report to this summer’s training camp if a long-term deal is not struck with the team by July 16.

Brees is reportedly seeking a 5-year deal earning $20.5 million per year: higher than the Saints’ last offer of $19.25 million per year.

Sports analysts are not surprised by the recent announcement as it has always loomed over the negotiations as something of a doomsday scenario. The prospect of starting training camp without a signed starting QB is expected to provide further leverage to Brees if an agreement is not reached beforehand.
