Saints' Drew Brees: Increased snap count expected Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Brees will likely increase his snap count during Saturday's preseason game in Houston, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. "I expect to play a little bit more, but I don't think that's been decided yet - or at least we haven't been told yet," he said after Thursday's joint practice with the Texans.

In the first exhibition last Thursday, Brees logged just three snaps, completing his sole pass to Brandin Cooks for a 37-yard gain on the first play from scrimmage. With perhaps another series or two on tap Saturday, Brees will continue working in an amended pass-catching corps that now includes free-agent pickup TE Coby Fleener and rookie WR Michael Thomas.

Saints' Drew Brees: Expects to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Brees expects to play the Saints' first offensive series during Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Brees still awaits a new deal with the Saints as he enters the final year of his contract, while he's slated to play briefly in the team's preseason opener Thursday in New England. Coach Sean Payton won't risk the veteran quarterback's health, as backups Luke McCown and Garrett Grayson figure to get a majority of the snaps behind center.

Saints' Drew Brees: No contract extension expected before training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Unless something changes in the next few days, Brees (foot) will not have a new contract in place before the Saints kick off training camp, reports Mike Triplett of ESPN.com. Brees, however, has insisted that he will not hold out or skip any practice time, and he fully participated in OTAs and minicamp. Saints' veterans report to training camp in West Virginia on Wednesday.

Brees is entering the last year of his contract, but the Saints appear content to let him play out the year with a whopping salary-cap figure of $30 million. Brees has stated that the unofficial deadline to complete an extension is the start of the regular season. Given that Brees continues to be productive -- he led the NFL in passing for the fourth time in five seasons last year with 4,870 yards in just 15 games played -- it would not be surprising to see the Saints and their franchise quarterback strike a deal prior to September 1.

Saints' Drew Brees: Talking Contract Extension
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Brees (foot) and Saints' general manager Mickey Loomis have talked about a contract extension, which head coach Sean Payton thinks "will get done very easily," reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Brees' contract is not set to expire until 2017, but an extension would permit the team to lower his huge salary cap number and presumably allow the Saints to be more active in free agency. Further reading between the lines, the fact that there has been no recent mention of the torn plantar fascia he suffered at the end of last season is likely a good sign for Brees' offseason prognosis. As such, there is little reason to believe that Brees will not be healthy and ready for action when official offseason training activities begin later this spring.

Saints' Drew Brees: Won't need surgery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Brees (foot) is not expected to need surgery to repair the torn plantar fascia in his right heel, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Brees visited with Dr. Robert Anderson, who recommended that the quarterback rest for 4-6 weeks before easing back into training activities. The foot injury didn't stop Brees from finishing the season on a high note, as he threw for over 300 yards (without any interceptions) in each of his final four games. There have been some reports suggesting that the Saints might move on if Brees won't take an outright pay cut for 2016, but it's hard to imagine that any team would actually be so foolish. If anything, Brees will likely be offered an extension that allows him to take home even more money in 2016 while also reducing his cap hit. He's still one of the top quarterbacks in the league, and his 2016 outlook is brightened by the emergence of Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead.
