Drew Brees says Saints talking extension for him

Peyton Manning’s contract extension came along just in time.

Ditto Michael Vick’s new deal.

It’s all going to help Drew Brees, who said his agent Tom Condon and the New Orleans Saints remain in talks about a new contract for the team’s undisputed leader. Brees is entering the final season of a $60 million, six-year contract.

I did see it," Brees said of Vick's contract, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "It looks like a nice contract. Obviously I don't know any of the details other than the six years and $100 million."

Maybe Brees is the next quarterback to join the $100 million club, although the Vick numbers are inflated by a final year that will void.

"They've been in discussions," Brees said. "That's been ongoing."
