Drew Brees Gets Big Payday

While the New Orleans Saints continue to grapple with an ongoing bounty program investigation, quarterback Drew Brees had much to celebrate on Friday when he signed a five-year, $100 million contract with the team, making him the richest player in the National Football League based on average salary. The team will have to soldier on without head coach Sean Payton, however, who was suspended for the upcoming season for his role in a bounty program meant to intentionally injure opponents between the 2009 and 2011 seasons.
