Drew Brees remains unsigned. Broncos need to make their move

John Elway is known for pulling the unexpected, and getting Brees would definitely qualify. At the least, put out a feeler.

What was once thought as impossible just got a little life.

It still is a pipe dream, but when John Elway is involved, there is always a glimmer of hope.

As of 10 a.m. MT Drew Brees remains unsigned by the New Orleans Saints and as entered the “legal tampering” period. That means Elway and the Denver Broncos are free to talk with Brees’ agent, Tom Condon. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because he also represents Peyton Manning. At the very least, Elway and the Broncos have worked with Condon in the past, but Manning could have an impact on this as well.

As I asked on the latest MHR Radio Podcast: At what point do you start to think, “maybe?”

This isn’t to say Brees will end up in Denver. This isn’t to say Elway will make this huge splash. But almost everyone expected a deal to keep Brees in New Orleans to be finished by now. As he has shown over the course of his career with the Broncos, all Elway needs is a chance.
