The season began differently than it ended for New Orleans Saints rookie running back Alvin Kamara.
METAIRIE, La. - New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton said he was just having "good playoff fun" with some fans in Minnesota on Sunday when he turned toward the crowd and made the Vikings' signature "Skol" clap gesture toward them. "It's the same way I felt two days ago".
However, Brees admitted that two days after the Saints were eliminated from the playoffs on an unbelievable play by the Minnesota Vikings is too soon to talk about contract decisions. However, the 39-year-old Brees says he doesn't plan on that. They felt that way in 2011 after the Saints lost to the 49ers in the divisional round.
The last time the two sides negotiated, they wound up agreeing to a one-year extension in September 2016 that lasted through the end of the 2017 season.
Sean Payton on doing 'Skol' clap: 'Good playoff fun'
If Brees does make it to March 14 without signing a contract with the Saints, there are likely to be other suitors. "I feel like we have a great window of opportunity [for a Super Bowl]". "I think we've played better on the back end, and I think our rush has gotten better". "We'll get to you when it's time and I'm sure that we'll go through the process, but today's not the time".
"I've been of part of talented teams in the past, throughout my career, though, that have not lived up to expectations, and I've been a part of teams that are just gutsy and gritty and surpassed expectations", Brees said.
Not only did he send out a tweet after the Saints' shocking 29-24 loss to the Vikings, but he also said he'd like to stay as long as the team wants him. "So bottom line is, success is dependent upon your willingness to work and the way that guys care about one another and the sense of urgency".
