Saints | GM says Drew Brees a great QB

New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis has refuted a report he doesn't believe impending free-agent QB Drew Brees is a "great" player. The size of the team's reported contract offer would seem to reflect as much. According to a league source, Brees and his agent, Tom Condon, turned down an offer that would have made Brees the highest-paid player in the NFL. Loomis said it was "ridiculous" to believe he doesn't think of Brees as a great player. Although Loomis wouldn't go into specifics about a contract, he added that the team appreciates Brees' greatness. "We're trying to pay him accordingly," Loomis said.
