Posted to PFT about 10 minutes ago. How real are these emails?

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/07/25/latest-brees-e-mail-suggests-full-free-agency-could-start-tuesday/

Quote
Saints quarterback Drew Brees has spent plenty of time composing e-mails to teammates of late.  His most recent message, a copy of which we have obtained, suggests that full free agency could open as soon as Tuesday.

Here’s the full text of the message.

“As has been the case with this entire process, it looks like the details and schedule has changed for training camp and free agency,” Brees writes.  “This is the latest although I cannot confirm anything at this point.  I just want to make you aware as to what is being discussed so nothing catches you by surprise.

“Free Agency - It now looks like free agency will begin at noon on Tuesday and it will be open free agency.  There will be no 3 day grace period for teams to sign their own players.  It will be open for anyone to sign anywhere.
“Training Camp - It looks like the NFL is trying to force teams into camp on time.  This would move us to a report date of Thursday, July 28.   We would have physicals, conditioning, and meetings on this day.  The day before would be a travel day and the hotel would be open that night for guys to check in as well as physicals but nothing mandatory until Thursday.
I will keep you updated with the latest information.  Unfortunately, it tends to change very quickly.  Just stay prepared for anything.”

That last message applies to all of us, really.  As the craziest week in recent memory comes to a conclusion, an even crazier week could be starting.

Reading all the various emails he's put out doesn't tell me much of anything other than I hope anyone on our defense puts a world-class hurting on him this season. What a **CENSORED**.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

If this is in fact true, what would think are the odds that this board crashes/freezes by 12:05?

This is going to be a bad year for football. Training camp opening the 28th for some teams? That would give them 2 days to get every player under contract in town. Not to mention the FA period would drag on right through TC. Meaning some marquee FA players may not even play 1 down till the regular season starts.
