As far as what's going on up to this point, it's not much, just the very beginning stages. I know they want me long-term and I want to be here long-term." Chargers general manager A.J. Smith at first refused to confirm that he or anyone else from the front office told Brees that. A few hours later, Smith called reporters back to confirm what Brees said.
