Drew Brees, Saints Not Any Closer To Longterm Contract

In the wake of Wednesday's announced suspensions of Jonathan Vilma, Anthony Hargrove, Will Smith and Scott Fujita, you would think the New Orleans Saints would do everything they could to create a bit of positive press, big or small. It appears, however, that their other big distraction this offseason -- Drew Brees' contract -- will continue to be a distraction for now, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Brees is skipping offseason workouts until an extension can be hashed out. Last week, general manager Mickey Loomis tried to deflect attention away from eavesdropping accusations by saying that the Saints were focusing their efforts towards making Brees happy. Schefter's tweet indicates that a rather large gulf still exists between both parties.
