Drew Brees: Won't Sit Out Upcoming Season
Update: Even as contract negotiations drag on, Brees made it clear that he will not sit out the upcoming season, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Recommendation: Brees has until July 16 to sign a long-term extension or he will be forced to accept the Saints one-year qualifying offer for franchised players. Or he could also decide to sit out all or some of next season. Brees, however, dismissed that notion, stating that he "would never sit out a football season." As such, while negotiations are allegedly nearing a conclusion, it is still reassuring to fantasy owners that the All-Pro quarterback will be in uniform this upcoming season one way or another.
