ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on SportsCenter Wednesday that the Saints are still making no progress in contract talks with unsigned franchise player Drew Brees.
There has been thought that bad PR brought about by the Saints' bounty scandal would spur owner Tom Benson into action, but that hasn't been the case. "I'm told that the two sides have not made any progress," Schefter said. "They're basically exactly where they've been ... they're not any closer to a new deal for Drew Brees than they were weeks ago. ... The deal is not close to being done."
