Brees hoping for reunion with Tomlinson

Posted on: March 9, 2009 2:04 pm

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that Saints quarterback Drew Brees would love to be reunited with close friend and former teammate LaDainian Tomlinson if the San Diego Chargers cut the former MVP tailback loose.

While discussing Tomlinson's contract standoff, Brees said Tomlinson should stay in San Diego because of what he means to the team, the fans and the community. But he also admitted, "I'm just waiting for the opportunity if he is available to come and snatch him away."

Brees hoping for reunion with Tomlinson

I seriously don't think LT in NO means a super bowl, but it definately makes them a contender. Really though, who actually thinks a player is going to stay on a team just b/c thats where he started and thats where the team thinks he should finish. This is the NFL. Obviously SD does not feel the need to pay LT the money, so let him go to a team that will. If SD thought that LT was the key to a super bowl next season, then they would keep him. They don't though, so let the bidding begin.

Brees hoping for reunion with Tomlinson

It would appear that the continued discussions are good news for those who want LT to stay in San Diego. 

The Chargers' latest proposal was essentially a final offer from the team, but according to the , there are parameters in which they were willing to work. 

The wiggle room is what is being worked out now, and it likely revolves around the structure of the contract – incentives, signing bonus, etc.
