Will Drew Brees play for the Denver Broncos or Dallas Cowboys? According to NFL rumors, Brees’ current team, New Orleans Saints, and the veteran quarterback have started talking about contract extensions the last week.
Both sides are reportedly aiming to get the contract done before the Saints’ season opener. However, Brees is already 37 years old and demanding a $100 million four-year extension, which could be too much considering he is nearing his 40s and possible retirement in the next few years could happen.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported the contract extension talks between the Saints and Brees, who has not shown decline in his play the last few seasons despite being one of the oldest players in the league.

There are NFL rumors that if the Saints and Brees cannot agree to a deal by Sunday, this could be his final season in New Orleans. Brees is the highest paid quarterback in the league earning $30 million in the 2016 NFL Season.
Brees’s contract with the Saints will be done after the season and despite being 37, teams like the Dallas Cowboys or Denver Broncos can steal him from the Saints. The Broncos won Super Bowl 50 last season with old quarterback Peyton Manning so they are a team that is willing to risk a season with veteran QBs.
The Dallas Cowboys lost Tony Romo to a back injury and have young Dak Prescott and veteran Mark Sanchez under center this season. If Romo does not recover, there is a chance that they will consider Brees in 2017 free agency if the Saints don’t give him the big contract.
NFL rumors of Drew Brees joining the Dallas Cowboys or Denver Broncos should be one of the headlines if the quarterback can’t get his $100 million deal with the New Orleans Saints.
