Report: Saints, Brees to discuss new short-term deal at combine
NEW ORLEANS, LA - NOVEMBER 27: Head coach Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints talks to Drew Brees #9 during the first half of a game against the Los Angeles Rams at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on November 27, 2016 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

There have been questions as to why the New Orleans Saints have yet to reach an agreement on a new contract with impending free agent Drew Brees.

The two sides are expected to meet during the scouting combine - held from Feb. 27 to March 5 - to discuss a new, short-term contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Brees is scheduled to become a free agent when the new league year begins on March 14.

Though Brees is now 39 and has played 18 seasons, he remained in MVP contention during the 2017 season while leading the Saints to a division title and one play from the conference championship game.

Brees has said on multiple occasions that he doesn't intend to wear another uniform as long as the feeling is mutual from the Saints. General manager Mickey Loomis said he doesn't anticipate any issues re-signing his quarterback either.
