NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says he isn't taking any of Drew Brees' recent complaints about slow
contract negotiations personally.
Loomis says the star quarterback's next contract is going to
have a significant effect on the team for a long time, so it has to
be right for the Saints as well as Brees.
Loomis spoke while attending a Saints Hall of Fame event Friday
at which former running back Deuce McAllister and club owner Tom
Benson were introduced as 2012 inductees.
Brees said earlier this week he is frustrated by a lack of
communication and lack of urgency to reach a deal.
Loomis says he loves Brees as much as any fan and says no one
wants the QB signed more than he does.
