Sean Payton is no idiot. With Drew Brees still performing at an elite level, there’s no way the Saints will let him walk away. There was rumors that Drew Brees might explore other options for a better contract… That’s obviously completely false. Brees will forever be a Saint, and Sean Payton will make sure of it with this next contract negotiation. However, it is time to start thinking about the future.
The 2018 NFL Draft will be coming in hot with tons of talent. The options being explored by Sean Payton and Co. going into the draft is a back-up QB. Drew Brees is still at the top of his game, and adding a young talented back-up Quarterback to the mix is the smartest thing for them to do.
You’re probably asking who in this 2018 Draft are the Saints looking at? None other than Oklahoma’s very own – Baker Mayfield.
Yep, this guy…
If the Saints went after Mayfield, I’d be fully on-board… He’s an entertaining player, and the Saints could use a little bit of flare in my opinion.
Sean Payton has hinted towards trading up dramatically, to make this happen! With a mentor like Drew Brees, there’s no way Baker Mayfield doesn’t get it together. He can throw, he can move, he can run… Mayfield is a triple threat, and if taken under Drew Brees’ wing – then the Saints’ future is locked in.
