does that idea. We have a lot of things we come back Drew Brees again I don't know is a better resigning or would it be better for both parties as they know what. As wait and see how the season goes if if you have a great season that we as the saints are gonna be appreciative and we know little costs more money so well I know you be an unrestricted free agent. Come to you risk losing Drew Brees . Or do you protect yourself and from drew standpoint would you assign a long term deal. If the saints go you know
the first game of the year you know create fumble against the Atlanta Falcons but after that hasn't been much excitement from Denver man. And if he can stay healthy that that we at a much needed element of the woods along with CT Kenny a car there. I think this secondary this season's going to be a lot better than many expected. Just because the play of wall so that the fraud should be improved without bond. So the rankings and also nick fairly. Take a break we come back on target about this old Drew Brees contract situation first of all is it a situation and everybody's happy way it'd. Should we worry and when it may be
rain is about 71 degrees right now. I wanna talk about troop Drew Brees in his contract if the saints do not. Negotiate a new deal with him he becomes an unrestricted free agent. After this season. Did did you find any real. Issue here any sense of urgency on neither the saints are Drew Brees is partners everybody. Pretty well open or just let him this he went ads see what happens this season and can they in mid season I guess yes signed him to a contract ranked. Yeah both sides really seem to be playing this you know they have their poker faces on right now. Mickey Loomis playing a comic the introductory press conference the other day and Drew Brees simply stating again yesterday that. You know what I wanna be here wanna get this deal done but. If it comes down to the regular season starting and I still have a contract but that's it negotiations I don't wanna hear about it anymore told about football. You know what what you least expect heading into the year with no contract the fear would be. Drew Brees has another lights out season puts up 4000 yards. And doesn't look like an eighteen quarterback goes into Europe on restricted free agency. And another team you others. A bunch of ball clubs out there that consider themselves contender that would love to sign Drew Brees . And they end up thrown a ton of money out of many ends up leading New Orleans which would break parts of just about every who dat. And also senses that OK we is a pretty big rebuilding project. And maybe I don't have time he goes through this and if I want another ring I'm gonna have to goes tomorrow. I don't think that see that Sean Payton and Drew Brees I don't know if they really believe there in rebuilding mode right now they're kind of just retooling. And I guess. This

saints and yesterday when he's yelled seed do in here. Yesterday was Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis is introductory press conferences on the saints players get on the practice field for the first time today. And they end up not the players didn't end up having to go to the conditioning test. Payton let them skip that to go help out with the flood recovery efforts. Rebuilding a playground and some houses in the area. And you know vote the biggest thing that I took away from yesterday you know there's always hope going into a new season but. But it doesn't seem to be hope with the Drew Brees contract extension right now. I didn't expect Mickey Loomis to be so upfront saying that there has been no progress whatsoever. Hmmm
have not progressed so. Book I have right now it looks like Drew Brees will be heading into this season without an expansion and will be an unrestricted free agent at season's there. Here's what I could read into that what what I what I think one thing you can read into a -- meantime if I make himself inside my head or not. It's like both sides kind. Are okay will this for now in and that Drew Brees knows that the clock is sticking and if the saints are more in. A rebuilding mode and it's going to be awhile
just concerned that he goes into this season and puts up atypical Drew Brees see that your and then. Goes onto the open market where it's another like at Denver Broncos team that has Mark Sanchez right now leading the way it goes you know what let's get a sells another ring in. Who cares if we have to overpay to bring Drew Brees in for two seasons. And and I'm thinking in that. We can imagine Drew Brees not playing for honest. But it's a gamble and you know the end decide which way obviously you wanna go I guess I've I. Boy I don't know that be a tough one divide it by Mickey Loomis. And maybe. Everybody really knows what the story is already but it's just not being told what I mean by that is seeking it's the season. By saying and I it was that we can squeeze out of Drew Brees this year has done work out well. Punt we'll start all over again when we come back talk about. What we can

and other democratic platform. And and Donald Trump has said that if Hillary Clinton is elected. She's going to take your guns away and I would asking if she can. Would she and and are you afraid about debtor could she do that. There's a deadly knife attack in Japan nineteen people were killed with a knife and a lot more wounded. And I just wonder if any every time we have one of these attacks here we immediately go to either guns. Or mental health . And I just wonder if this makes the issue makes the case that it really is about mental health . And that even if you outlawed guns. People will eventually find soft targets. Upon which to take out there rage with whatever
when something like that happens. A man shooting that it's all about mental health and no we need more funding for that if if it's I don't know yet you tell me that maybe that would
not gonna happen genes out of the bottle but. Is about the mental health of the person. And if there hell bent on doing harm. Are they gonna find a way to do it even if
