#1 if Payton Manning re-signs with the Colts then that would throw all the teams who need a QB into a panic frenzy which then it'll help us trade out of the 5th spot..boy would i love that...
#2 if Brees doesn't sign the contract extension then they would most definitely tag him ...which means that Nicks wont get tagged and would be free for us to sweet him up with a mega deal...if Brees gets his contract then we have to say Goodbye to Mr.Nicks
Let's hope these things pan out in our favor..go bucs!!!

There's some speculatyion that the league will take away Saints franchise tag for 2012.  That would mean Brees, Nicks & Colston ALL hit free agency not to mention several others.....That would be rather cool.

im pretty sure he's not...Nicks is a probowl Guard..not just a decent OL..Colston is a product of Brees im sure they rather have their probowl guard over a solid WR that they have a bunch of them behind Colston

that's what i'm interested to see. I'm hoping Drew Brees isnt a part of it, even though I hate playing against him, I've always seen him as a pretty stand up guy, and applauded him as a person.

if they take away the franchise tag, and Colston, Nicks, and Brees ALL hit FA, that would be crazy, and I'm not too sure Brees would resign with them if the organization is looking to be in shambles.

can you imagine no Brees, no Meachem, no Colston, no Nicks, no first pick this year, maybe no second, no first round pick next year... :o talk about devastating to a franchise!!

I am sure most of the team was aware. I also think the Aints aren't the only team guilty of this. Surprised how much evidence they acquired to bust the story sooo open...makes me wonder who the snitch is.

Nicks is has way more value when you compare the two in the free agent market but I actually think Brees values Colston more. He and Colston have great chemistry, timing, and an understanding of each other, not to mention Colston is 6'4". Brees is so good  that he can afford to have a little less help on the line. He does such a great job at looking off safeties, using his peripheral vision to see his receivers, and getting rid of the ball fast. I think he can pruduce even without a good line and he's one of the only guys I would say that about. It's usually the opposite. Idk though Nicks is valuable on a broader scope so they may tag him..

One other cool thing about Brees. Anybody see him throw no look passes when he's at the goal line? I saw it last season, he's like freaking Steve Nash with a football.

fellas take easyy with this NO Brees ,Nicks and Colston ..lol by  the time they find out all the Details the NFL would long under way..so that means tha Bree hoping he gets tagged would be working out his contract ..Colston will probably be out by then and so would be Nicks ..but Brees ain't going nowhere fellas...now the draft picks for next year that could be big trouble for them ..which works out in our favor if they get screwed ..the domino effect continues...lol

but that's what I'm saying, they probably wont have Nicks or Colston back. and I saw something about possibly losing a franchise tag for this year. That means they'd have to pay Brees straight up, which is what they would do. But would Brees really want to come back if the team was down some key offensive cogs, and with a possible uncertain future for picks on the horizon?

Sure it's wild and speculative, but it isnt impossible. I'm sure Brees would be torn to stay in NO, but I'm sure he also wants to win. he is a competitor.

Everyone is SOOO over-hyping Colston.  He is a pretty good receiver who is injured all the time and looked much better than he is because he has one of the best of all time throwing to him. The Saints know this better than anyone, and most other teams know it as well. For some reason fans and even most of the media are making him out to be this superstar who might get franchised? It is delusional. He is not even under consideration for being tagged, and not even a priority to resign.

i agree the media is over-hyping Colston, he is a good player, but a product of Drew Brees and a potent NO offense.

give some credit to possible franchising though, players who get Franchised dont have to be Superstars. Fred Davis is getting Franchised for Washington for example.

It's about locking up key personnel for teams. Why would the Saints want to try to find a good free agent WR or rookie, if they could just tag Colston? That's why people suggest it as a possibility.
