The new NFL year begins tomorrow, and the Saints have their man locked up before the deadline.  Drew Brees got a 2 year deal worth $50 million with $27 million guaranteed. To the Cajun Cannon Bobby Hebert, its a win-win for the team and the player.   ​

"I think its about right, "explained Hebert.  "To me, it's somewhat of a hometown discount when you look at it compared to the market and the value right now.  So, I think it is a fair deal for the Saints and a fair deal for Drew."

Just how much of a discount does Hebert think Brees gave to the Black & Gold? 

"I believe he could have gotten twice as much as that guaranteed on the open market if he really wanted to go somewhere else.  It's definitely going to help the Saints in free agency."
